Hello, The percentage is probably pretty high because of the high risk factors. These factors involve oral-motor coordinatio difficulties, language formulation/word finding difficulties, ear infections/allergies, and sensory integration issues. The attached references have some figures but they vary in percentages. Enjoy your fall colors. I was just there a few weeks back. I grew up in Wausau and my brother has a summer place in Woodruff. Thank you. Judith
