Acquisition du concept et des mots du temps chez l'enfant dyslexique

Abstract : Although speech-language therapists often report cases of time disorders among dyslexic children, this domain still remains largely under-explored. This study aimed at confirming that dyslexic children were more likely to have difficulty with the concept of time and with the words expressing time. We assessed 20 dyslexic children and 104 schoolchildren in their first to fifth year of primary school with the TKIC, a recent tool by Labrell & al. (2014) evaluating time knowledge and the QMT, a questionnaire we specially designed to investigate the comprehension of words expressing time.Besides a significant impact of school grade on time perception, results revealed that dyslexic children had more difficulty grasping the concept and a poorer understanding of time-related words, especially of the terms requiring logical reasoning. Knowing that time and written language are closely linked, once standardized, the QMT will enable speech therapists to identify their patients’ time disorders with greater accuracy.
