Abstract

The purpose of the present research was to provide information to the community about the reading subskill profiles of children with dyslexia in primary and secondary school students. 175 children (aged 7-15 yrs) were examined on a varied set of phonological coding, spelling and fluent reading tasks. For this purpose, students’ fluent reading were determined using The Informal Reading Inventory. The student’s letter recognition and phonetics were measured by the alphabet test. The syllable test was used to measure the learner’s ability to read syllables. Results have shown that most of the dyslexic students have the spelling problem (35%) and fluent reading problem (51%). The proportion of students who can only learn letters (5%) and students who never learn to read (7%) is very small. Results revealed that dyslexic students do not have any significant problems in the phonological coding process but these students at each grade level have problems especially in spelling and fluent reading processes.
