The name of the ninth author is incorrect. Maria Magdalena Echeverry should read María Magdalena Echeverry.

The affiliation for Pía Villanueva is incorrect. The affiliation should read Department of Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, University of Chile, Santiago, Chile.

The affiliation for Anne O’Hare is incorrect. The affiliation should read Child Life & Health, School of Clinical Sciences, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom.

There is an error in the first paragraph of page 4. The sentence: "The contribution of identified risk variants is subsequently validated by performing targeted sequencing of candidate genes in a UK-based cohort of individuals affected by SLI," should read: "The contribution of identified risk variants is subsequently validated by performing targeted sequencing of a candidate gene in a UK-based cohort of individuals affected by SLI."

There are errors in the Author Contributions. The correct contributions are:
