Investigating Dyslexia Among Iraqi EFL University Students


Asst.Inst. Nuha Amir Kamel

Dyslexia is a language-based learning disability. It refers to a bunch of symptoms, which result in people having difficulties with specific language skills, mainly reading. Students with dyslexia may experience difficulties in other language skills such as spelling, writing, and speaking. It is necessary here to clarify exactly what is meant by Dyslexia as a life-long condition; however its impact can change at different stages in a person’s life. To achieve the aim of the research, a sample of (122) first year students of English language Department / College of Education for Humanities/ Diyala University are considered to be the subjects of this research. A scaled questionnaire as an instrument of measurement is used in this research to be an investigatory tool. The results of this research prove that the hypothesis of this study is verified and accepted which reads that some Iraqi EFL students have dyslexia and undiagnosed by teachers and can be manifested in reading, writing and speaking learning difficulties they have.
