Description: With over four hundred pairs of twins participating in annual data collection sessions over the past ten years, the Western Reserve Reading Project (WRRP) explores how the environment affects children's ability to learn "by evaluating how genes and environmental factors are involved in the development of these skills later in life." Research has included "Math Fluency is Etiologically Distinct from Untimed Math Performance, Decoding Fluency, and Untimed Reading Performance: Evidence from a Twin Study" (Journal of Learning Disabilities); "Exploring How Symptoms of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder Are Related to Reading and Mathematics Performance: General Genes, General Environments" (Psychological Science); "A factorial analysis of timed and untimed measures of mathematics and reading abilities in school aged twins"; "The ABCs of Math: A Genetic Analysis of Mathematics and Its Links With Reading Ability and General Cognitive Ability" (Journal of Educational Psychology); "Developmental Origins of Low Mathematics Performance and Normal Variation in Twins from 7 to 9 Years" (Twin Research and Human Genetics); "Mathematical Ability of 10-Year-Old Boys and Girls: Genetic and Environmental Etiology of Typical and Low Performance" (Journal of Learn Disabilities); "The Origins of Diverse Domains of Mathematics: Generalist Genes but Specialist Environments (Journal of Educational Psychology); and "fMRI Twin Study of Reading and Math." WRRP's longitudinal study receives funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Child Development of the NIH.
