Hypothesis: Dyslexia and low vitamin D - early 2013

Could a Vitamin D Deficiency Cause Dyslexia? Spring 2013

Dyslexia is similar to autism

  • Dyslexia tends to run in families, as does autism.
  • Dyslexic children often exhibit developmental delays in motor skills as do autistic children.
  • Many of the symptoms of dyslexia overlap the symptoms of ADHD, Asperger's and autism.
  • Children diagnosed with ADHD, Asperger's and autism often also struggle with reading
  • Increased consumption of fish has been shown to be linked to both autism and reading ability.
  • Dyslexia and autism both affect more boys than girls.

Children with dyslexia are also usually deficient in Zinc, Magnesium, Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D
