In the Netherlands, dyslexia affects approximately 4-7% of children in primary education and around 12% of students in secondary education. Dyslexia can result from a complex interplay between risk factors and protective factors, which means affected children can differ greatly in their developmental trajectories and the difficulties they experience. Sietske van Viersen studies two specific groups of children: those with a family risk of developing dyslexia and gifted children with dyslexia.
