Background Information of my questions: At the age of eight I was "diagnosed" with Dyslexia, I am now 47. I went from not being able to read and barely able to write to a college reading level in 9 months. I was in a program run by a Mrs. Cooper in Pennsylvania. I have taken several different IQ tests during my lifetime and found the results vary widely. I have noted that in the last ten years or so Dyslexia seems to be an almost antiquated diagnosis and am very curious about the definition of dyslexia in current science and the correlation, if any, between Dyslexia and intelligence.
- Is there any specific IQ test that is directed at measuring the IQ's of people with dyslexia?
- What is the correlation between having dyslexia and IQ?
