Dyslexia Gene Identified and Called "KIAA0319"

Researchers led by Professor Julie Williams and Professor Michael O'Donovan at Cardiff University// have discovered the gene which is likely to be the cause of dyslexia in children. An analysis of 300 families where at least one child suffered from dyslexia was done to identify the gene. The gene has been called "KIAA0319".

"This is a major breakthrough and the first study to identify one gene which contributes to susceptibility to the common form of dyslexia. We would like to thank all the parents and children who took part in the study and would extend a call to new volunteers to take part in this important research," said Prof.Julie Williams.

"The finding vindicates our optimism that a disorder as apparently complicated as impaired reading ability can be amenable to molecular genetic dissection," O' Donovan said.

There maybe other genes and factors for the condition called dyslexia. Many parents and teachers are not aware of this condition that has been identified as the leading cause of learning disability in children.
