Abstract:
The objective of the study was to compare emotional intelligence and behavior disorders in dyslexic and non-dyslexic boys. A random sample of 15 dyslexic boys were compared with matched controls, all aged 11-15 years. A causal comparative research method was employed and data was collected through administration of self report measures of emotional intelligence and behavior disorders. Results of the study revealed that emotional intelligence is correlated with behavior problems (r = -0.54, p<0.05). Furthermore, dyslexic children scored lower on emotional intelligence and higher on behavior problems than their normal counterparts. As well as being congruent with earlier research, the present findings point to the importance of emotional intelligence in school achievement and behavioral health.
