Autism Gene linked to Childhood Language Disorder

In Health and Safety by Paul MartinLeave a Comment

Research conducted at the University of Oxford was focused on a variety of genes which were believed to play a role in childhood language disorders.

They have come out with a statement linking childhood language disorder to an autism gene known as CNTNAP2.

The study, conducted on 184 families, found that those who carried the genes were also the most likely to have the language disorder. Specific Language Impairment effects nearly seven percent of all pre-school children.

The study has been published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
