A Thirteen-Year Follow-Up Study of Young Norwegian Adults with Dyslexia in Childhood: Reading Development and Educational Levels
Undheim, Anne Mari
Dyslexia, v15 n4 p291-303 Nov 2009
As part of a larger follow-up study, 75 students were diagnosed with dyslexia at 10 years of age. At the end of secondary school, grades for the whole cohort of 16-year olds were examined. At age 23 the whole study group responded to a questionnaire and the subgroup with dyslexia who responded to this questionnaire were invited to come for testing and interviews. The persistence of dyslexia into young adulthood and educational levels were examined. The results showed that almost all students still suffered dyslexia and showed lower decoding ability. However, they only showed slightly lower educational attainment levels compared with a representative sample of half the cohort (n=530) they were part of. (Contains 6 tables.)
