Reading Clinics--Helping the Disabled Reader Through Special Services.
Michael, Lois I.
The primary goal of reading clinics is to help disabled readers. However, clinics also help teachers diagnose reading disabilities and recommend remediation. They help implement research on the effects of special instruction, the causes of reading disabilities, the effectiveness of diagnostic tests, and other related factors. They may also train reading teachers, specialists, and clinicians. Reading clinics may be private or part of a public school system or university. To function effectively, they should be established on sound principles, be well-equipped, and staffed by trained personnel. They should give prime consideration to their clientele, their objectives, and to the implementation and evaluation of these objectives. (NS)
