Exclusion of Linkage to 1p, 6p and Chromosome 15 in a Large Norwegian Family with Dyslexia
Dyslexia is most simply defined as persistent difficulty in reading and spelling, in the absence of any neurologic or other cause, in an individual with normal intelligence and adequate schooling (Critchley and Critchley, 1978). Difficulties in spelling and decoding may persist through adult life. Currently there is no single test which permits a clear diagnosis of dyslexia. More specific definitions, based on varying test batteries, are made in most reported linkage studies.
