What coincidence!

Today I read this area since a long time ago. And just today, when giving a
talk on Esperanto I remembered the news

Nei Paesi anglosassoni il numero di bambini dislessici, vale a dire con
difficolta' di lettura e di scrittura e' doppio rispetto all'Italia: 8%
contro 4%.

(They say it would be published in "Science"; I'm not sure whether it was.Wink

So English speaking children have double probability to become dyslectic with
respect to Italian-speaking children (I suppose it is similar with respect to
Spanish-speaking ones).

And I thought then about Chinese dyslectics...
