Reading Diagnosis and Remediation.
This monograph includes an extensive review and evaluation of the research literature and offers teachers and clinicians background for understanding reading diagnosis, the correlates and causes of reading disabilities, diagnostic techniques, and remediation. The following topics are discussed: (1) the nature and levels of diagnosis, (2) the characteristics and conditions related to reading achievement and disability, (3) severe reading diabilities, (4) diagnostic techniques, (5) diagnosing special groups, (6) remediation, and (7) trends, needs, and future directions in diagnosis and remediation. There is a growing emphasis on early diagnosis, differential diagnosis, behavioral approach, perception, and learning modalities. However, teachers and clinicians must be helped to improve their competence in using diagnostic instruments and results, in observing student behavior, and selecting the most appropriate teaching and guidance procedures. Self-diagnosis through introspective-retrospective verbalization should be encouraged. More extensive case studies and more research on the effectiveness of certain teaching procedures with certain individuals under certain conditions should be conducted. This monograph is accompanied by an extensive bibliography and a list of reading tests. (NS)
