Évaluation de la mémoire prospective chez des adolescents dyslexiques

Abstract : Given the lack of research on prospective memory in dyslexia, we suggested a comput-erized evaluation of prospective memory to dyslexic and non-dyslexic teenagers aged from 10 to 15 years. The protocol includes a questionnaire of prospective memory self-evaluation and additional tests of working memory, episodic memory and executive functions which functions are involved in the operation of prospective memory. Statistical analyses revealed difficulties in prospective tasks for dyslexics. An analysis of the questionnaire shows that looking-forward is linked with the short-term memory with an environmental index for dyslexic adolescents. Some prospective memory scores are also in correlation with scores for complementary tests. This study may open new perspectives in the process of accompanying the patient in speech therapy by providing instructions adapted to the ob-served prospective memory difficulties. Furthermore, a better understanding of how prospective memory works will allow dyslexic teens and their families to have a better grasp of its functioning, enhance their everyday life and increase their autonomy.
