Étude des fluences phonémiques chez des enfants présentant un trouble du langage écrit

Abstract : Objective: This study aims to collect the performances of verbal and phonemic fluency tasks (orally and in written) from dyslexic children, schooled from third to fifth grade. We first present a comparison between dyslexic children abilities and normal readers children, then correlations between fluency performance and orthographic skills.
Method: The semantic (animal category) and phonemic (letters P, M, H, J) performances were collected from a sample of 85 dyslexic children between January 2019 and February 2020 by speech-language therapists according to a protocol that we sent them. This consists of two thirty minute sessions and also includes an assessment of some oral and written language skills.
Results: The analysis of these results shows strong correlation between semantic and phonemic written fluency with dictation and reading performances. As expected, written phonemic and semantic fluency performances are significantly lower for dyslexic children than for normal readers children. However, they produce as many words as normal readers children in phonemic oral fluency.
Discussion: The results of this study indicate that written fluencies could be considered as a predictor of lexico-orthographic mechanisms. However, questions remain about the impact of inhibition factors during transcription, and it could be one of the explanations for the absence of differences in oral modality.
