L'évaluation de la mémoire sémantique chez l'enfant normolecteur et chez l'enfant dyslexique

Abstract : Evaluation of semantic memory is generally done with verbal fluency tasks. Although they provide essential information on semantic memory, they have the disadvantage to be sensitive to other cognitive function as semantic memory and particularly executive function. Several studies have shown that free association tasks could be more pure measures of semantic memory, and could be therefore an interesting alternative. At first, we assess in what extent the free association task is an adequate measure of semantic memory. Secondly, the free association task is proven with dyslexic children population. The results allow us to see that free association task could be a good alternative or complement to the verbal fluency task. However, no difference was observed between dyslexic children and typically development children on this task. The results are discussed in terms of our research protocol and leads for future research are proposed.
