DYSLEXIA--READING DISABILITY WITH NEUROLOGICAL INVOLVEMENT.
GEHRING, KATHRYN B.
THE SYMPTOMATOLOGY AND TREATMENT OF DYSLEXIA ARE DISCUSSED. A DESCRIPTION OF THE DYNAMIC NATURE OF DYSLEXIA, INCLUDING VISUAL PERCEPTION, AUDITORY PERCEPTION AND SPEECH, NEUROLOGICAL ABNORMALITIES, AND AUDITORY-VISUAL RELATIONSHIPS, IS PRESENTED. TREATMENT FOR DYSLEXIC CHILDREN IS DEPENDENT ON DIAGNOSIS AND CONSTANT EVALUATION. SOME METHODS OF TEACHING READING ARE DESCRIBED. ALTHOUGH PRESENT PROSPECTS FOR DYSLEXIC CHILDREN ARE NOT FAVORABLE, SOME PROGRAMS FOR LEARNING DISABILITIES ARE BECOMING AVAILABLE. HOWEVER, DIAGNOSIS IS DIFFICULT, AND SPECIAL METHODS OF INSTRUCTION ARE SELDOM BEGUN EARLY ENOUGH TO AVOID EMOTIONAL INVOLVEMENT. A BIBLIOGRAPHY IS INCLUDED. (BK)
