    Abstract: In this talk, I will summarize findings from two twin projects focused on examining the genetic and environmental influences on reading and math development in childhood. I will then discuss my efforts to make behavioural genetics meaningful for the classroom, cumulating into the “Precision Education Initiative”. Dr Sara Hart is an Associate Professor of Psychology and the Florida Center for Reading Research, Florida State University. Broadly defined, her research interests focus on the sources of individual differences on cognitive ability and achievement development. Primarily she focuses on how genetics and the environment interplay to influence the development of reading and math skills. Additionally, she is interested in incorporating genetic and family environment information into classrooms.
