Étude des profils au WISC-V et pathologies spécifiques du langage ou des apprentissages

Abstract : Aim : To establish WISC-V specific cognitive profiles for children with dyslexia or SLI.
Method : A systematic review was undertaken to collect existing data about these children’s performances at WISC-IV’s and WISC-V’s indexes. A retrospective study was then realized onto a sample of fifteen dyslexic and fourteen SLI children, aged from 6 years old to 16 years old and 11 months, who where submitted WISC-V and language exams.
Results : The WMI is the index presenting the lower value among dyslexic children’s scores. Among SLI children’s scores, similar results are found in comparison with FRI, VSI and PSI, but no significant difference is reported between WMI and VCI. Results about PSI do not show any significance concerning the studied pathologies. SLI children VCI’s score is not significant enough.
Discussion : Identified profiles for both pathologies show similarities with those described in literature about the WMI in WISC-IV and about the VCI for SLI children. However, results for PSI differ from baseline publications.
Conclusion : Specificities are noticed for dyslexic and SLI children. Dyslexic children’s profile is homogeneous except from the WMI, more impaired than the others. For SLI children, low VCI and WMI’s scores seem to be markers of the pathology.
