Reading Comprehension Skills of Young Adults with Childhood Diagnoses of Dyslexia.
Ransby, Marilyn J.; Swanson, H. Lee
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v36 n6 p538-55 Nov-Dec 2003
Adults (ages 17-23) with childhood developmental dyslexia (CD) completed measures of phonological processing, naming speed, working memory, general knowledge, vocabulary and comprehension. Subjects scored lower than chronological age-matched adults, but were similar to reading-level matched children on most processing measures. Results suggest adults with CD experience difficulties in working memory, listening comprehension, and vocabulary that are independent of their reading skills. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
