This presentation discusses potential areas of ability and difficulties that adult students with dyslexia often show in comprehending written text. Although reading difficulties persist into adulthood, the specific features of these difficulties are less well understood when it comes to reading comprehension. Data collected from adult students, focusing on reading to retain details versus to make inferences, is used to discuss the likely comprehension difficulties experienced by adults with dyslexia and ways to support their achievement.
ADULT: Examine research findings and implications for practice relevant to adults with dyslexia.
