Some Exploratory Studies on the Clinical Management of Dyslexia.
Shedd, Charles L.
Problems concerning dyslexia are specified, suggestions for working with dyslexics are made, and a number of programs to serve as models to be improved upon are described. The major problem noted is the development of materials and procedures that can be used effectively with dyslexics. Emphasis is placed on reading from left to right, training in letter-sound correspondence, training in sound discrimination, and training in blending; in short, emphasis is on decoding procedures. Hearing sounds accurately is important in producing the sounds orally or in writing. Critical ingredients of clinical management of dyslexics pointed out are one-to-one instruction, a multisensory approach, and highly structured material. Instructors who carry on the tutorial work do not need to be highly trained, and there is no need for additional equipment such as machines and special games. No one method is specified; a variety of environmental, emotional, and intellectual situations should be employed so that modifications, variations, and alterations can be made whenever necessary. References are included. (RT)
