A Study of Adults Who Experienced Childhood Reading Problems.
Tillman, Chester; And Others
A study was conducted using contemporary test scores to describe adults who reported that they had experienced severe reading problems in childhood and that such problems continued to influence their functioning as adults. Twelve men and one woman ranging in age from 20 to 54 volunteered for the study. All had attended college or technical school and six had doctorates of philosophy, medical degrees, or a combination of both. Background information on childhood reading problems of the subjects was obtained by self-report only. Although all subjects expressed concern about their present reading skills, the evidence indicated successful attainment in their careers, and the results of the contemporary tests were positive in all cases. The tests that were administered indicated no current deficits in intelligence, oral or silent reading, word attack skills, or spelling. (MKM)
