Ka-ho is a 14-year-old Chinese adolescent, who was originally interviewed four years ago (see Chu, Chung, & Ho, 2011). In the current interview he revealed problems coping with his feelings about not fitting into the Hong Kong educational system, which is well-known for its pressure to achieve good grades on standardized tests (Poon & Wong, 2008). Ka-ho was somewhat reluctant to discuss his frustrations with homework and reading as well as his relationship with teachers, peers, and his father. This follow-up interview investigates Ka-ho’s academic, social and emotional development during adolescence and hightlights the challenges faced by Chinese students with dyslexia in high school and beyond.
