Research request: dyslexia and reading enjoyment

Hannah and her team Royal Holloway University are studying reading enjoyment in adults with dyslexia to see whether a person will wait to read more of a book and other reading behaviours (eg comprehension, reading anxiety) in those with and without dyslexia.

Could you take part? The online task takes around 30 minutes.

Hannah is looking for:

  • Those with dyslexia
  • Between ages 18-30
  • Without any other neurodevelopmental condition that could affect learning, including autism, ADHD, epilepsy, or genetic disorders.
  • Those who are native English speakers (defined as attending school in a majority English-speaking country from age 5).
  • With normal or corrected to normal vision and hearing
  • Please use a computer, laptop or tablet to complete the study rather than a mobile device.

Reading in adults with dyslexia research

***This study has now closed. Thank you for participating! Sign up to our e-newsletter to hear about the research results later this year.***

Laura is a third-year student at Royal Holloway, University of London. She is researching reading and enjoyment and reading behaviour in adults who have dyslexia and is recruiting participants for the study.

Laura says:

We are looking for adults aged 18-30 with dyslexia to participate in our online study, with the opportunity to enter a prize draw for a £50 Amazon voucher. We are looking for adults with normal/corrected-to-normal vision and hearing, who are native English speakers (defined as attending school in a majority English speaking country from age 5). We kindly ask you not to participate if you have a neurodevelopmental condition that affects learning (e.g. autism, ADHD, epilepsy).

The main task of the study will involve reading a series of short book extracts, rating how much you enjoy them, and deciding if you would like to read a bit more of the book, or if you would like to move straight on to the next book.

You will also be asked to complete two short questionnaires about your reading history and experiences, and a measure of reading fluency.

Taking part will take approximately 30 minutes.

Please use a computer, laptop or tablet to complete the study rather than a mobile device, to ensure tasks are displayed correctly.
