Abstract: Most research on dyslexia has studied the elementary population. However, the effects of dyslexia do not disappear with age, although the manifestation of the core deficits in dyslexia may change over time. Underlying phonological deficits in adults with developmental dyslexia (DD) may impair their ability to encode and recall auditory information. This study examined recall of auditory information in compensated adults with DD when responses were written or oral. As expected, the DD group had poorer recall than control subjects, with the difference in recall more obvious after the second recall attempt. Amount of information recall correlated with executive function measures of processing speed rather than memory. Results from this study identify impairments in individuals with DD that might impact classroom performance.
