Abstract: This article focuses on the development of a Literacy Assessment Battery for the diagnosis of Maltese children with specific learning difficulties. It forms part of a wider research study involving testing of 549 children in Malta as well as standardisation of the tool. Results of the children’s performance and psychometric validation go beyond the scope of this article and therefore will not be recorded here.
Description: This research project is sponsored by the Malta Government Scholarship Scheme within the Ministry of Education. It is part of ongoing Doctoral Studies.
