GUIDELINES FOR MILLER-UNRUH READING PROGRAMS, REVISED.
KITCH, DONALD E.
CALIFORNIA RECOGNIZED THAT THE ABILITY TO READ IS A VITAL SKILL NEEDED BY ALL SCHOOL-AGE YOUNGSTERS. THE MILLER-UNRUH READING ACT OF 1965 AND ITS 1967 AMENDMENTS ARE DESIGNED TO HELP PRIMARY-GRADE CHILDREN SUCCEED IN READING. THE MILLER-UNRUH ACT FOCUSES UPON THE DIAGNOSIS OF ACTUAL OR ANTICIPATED READING DISABILITY, THE PREVENTION OF POTENTIAL AND THE CORRECTION OF ACTUAL READING DISABILITY, THE ASSESSMENT OF THE DEVELOPMENTAL ASPECTS OF CHILD GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT AS THESE MAY AFFECT BEGINNING READING, AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF POSITIVE ATTITUDES TOWARD READING. THE MAJOR FEATURE OF THE ACT PROVIDES SCHOOL DISTRICTS WITH THE OPPORTUNITY TO OBTAIN SPECIALIST TEACHERS OF READING FOR GRADES 1, 2, AND 3. THE ACT ENVISIONS THE DEVELOPMENT OF INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS, THE EXTENSIVE USAGE OF LIBRARY FACILITIES, INSERVICE EDUCATION FOR CLASSROOM TEACHERS OF READING, THE MAINTENANCE OF READING-LEARNING CENTERS, AND ASSISTANCE IN CONTINUING EVALUATION OF READING PROGRAMS. A TEAM APPROACH, INVOLVING PARTICIPATION BY THE PUPIL, THE PARENT, THE REGULAR CLASSROOM TEACHER, THE SPECIALIST TEACHER OF READING, AND OTHER STAFF SPECIALISTS, FORMS THE NUCUELUS OF THIS PROGRAM.
