Dyslexia Runs in Families

I don’t have the book finished, so I’ll provide you with the information here: The many genes needed for a complicated trait like reading or dyslexia are spread across several chromosomes, not all on…
What It Takes To Read Fluently, Part II
I actually like this section pretty well. It is clear, doesn’t have too many words, and has several human elements in among the information. What do you think?
What It Takes to Read Fluently Part I
I’m trying to not overwhelm readers as I present new ideas, so I have broken What It Takes to Read Fluently into two parts. As always, does this section make sense? Is this a good pace, or can I go faster?
