The DyslexiaBaby project aims at studying children's language development and the effects familial risk for dyslexia has on it.

Dyslexia is a highly heritable learning disability. With dyslexia, reading is slower and more prone to mistakes. Our goal is to find effective means to alleviate or prevent dyslexia as early as possible.

From 2015 to 2017, we recruited families that were expecting a child, and at least one of the parents had dyslexia. We also recruited families that had no dyslexia as controls. All in all, we have recorded EEG from over 200 newborn babies, 75 percent of which have a genetic risk for dyslexia.

In the spring of 2022, we have finished measuring the 4-5-year-old children.
