What are the chance both my sons are dyslexic

ok 1st of not all kinda of dyslexia are hereditary but my kind is . i know that mostly males inherit it it rare in females also with my form of dyslexia there 3 main interlinked conditions they are

adhd, i'm shore most people know what that is

dyspraxia - its a balance disorder

photoscopic disorder - its why mean dyslexic use pink or green paper

anyway i have very bad dyslexic , slight dyspraxia and photoScorpio disorder . my mother is the same . i also am very smart well above normal my brother had dyslexia and what i believe is undiagnosed adhd my gran was dyslexic to . so it very strong down my family .

my hubby family also have adhd and dyslexia running down it but my hubby is not dyslexic but he shows signs of adhd, it just was not really recognised back then

so my oldest son is 2 and he hyper hyper he learns anything  physical fast so we already know he dose not have dyspraxia but i know he at high risk of adhd and dyslexia. my other son is 7 months old

i just wanted to know what you think the chances are

It is believed that this condition affects, to varying degrees, approximately 12% of the population and that the condition is somehow caused by the brain and/or eye incorrectly processing/interpreting what the eye is seeing (ie. it is neurological).
