Forgetting to remember to remember: Prospective memory in adults with dyslexia
Smith-Spark, JH (2017). Forgetting to remember to remember: Prospective memory in adults with dyslexia. Dyslexia Review. 28 (1), pp. 9-11.
Prospective memory is memory for delayed intentions. Difficulties with remembering to do something at a later date can have serious consequences for employment, education, health, and social life. A research programme is described which compared the prospective memory of adults with dyslexia with that of age- and IQ-matched adults without dyslexia. The adults with dyslexia were found to have more frequent problems overall and in particular areas of prospective memory. Difficulties were found across laboratory and more naturalistic tasks and were also self-reported. These problems should be considered when providing support for adults with dyslexia in employment and educational settings.
