Validation de l'EDA comme outil de dépistage et critères d'indication orthophonique

Abstract : In France, reading difficulties are more and more widespread and are becoming a major society issue, particularly in underprivileged environments. Our study is part of a wider project aiming at fighting against achievement disparities in the domain of reading skills acquisition. This requires strong coordination between teachers and health professionals. This study first aims at assessing whether the EDA (Evaluation Des fonctions cognitives et des Apprentissages: evaluation of acquired knowledge and cognitive functions evaluation) can be used as a baseline to identify children struggling with reading difficulties and to implement an adapted speech therapy treatment. To this end, we assessed 44 children from the 3rd and 4th grades of a same school using EDA and speech therapy tests evaluating similar fields and were able to confirm the correlation between EDA and reference tests concerning the different linguistic areas. Sorting children according to the severity of their disorder and verifying the similarity between results from EDA and those from classical speech therapy tests, we were able to demonstrate that, while the screening test package has a good sensibility, it lacks the sensitivity of the reference test package. This lack of sensitivity could be explained by the selection of some tests as well as the studied population. Finally, working with EDA results allowed us to sharpen speech therapy indication criteria.
