Éva Gyarmathy is a Senior Researcher at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and is working on a research project involving adults with dyslexia, specifically an online portal. Here is some information from Dr. Gyarmathy about the project:
“We work on a research project on adult dyslexia. We have created an online portal service to follow and register the needs of dyslexic adults and the effect of the support. This is the portal site: http://www.literacyportal.eu
We collect ideas for our dyslexic users to be more effective in everyday life. We managed to develop an online test of dyslexia, not a questionnaire, but really a test. The validation study shows that our online test differentiates dyslexic users and can identify their strengths and weaknesses.”
This is the link to the test: http://www.literacyportal.eu/en/test-yourself.html
To take the test, all you need to do is create a free account through the portal. What do you think of the test?
The portal not only has this online test but a huge range of other resources including information about dyslexia, tips on how to manage your time and other aspects of daily life, brain training exercises, and forums to connect to other adults with dyslexia.
