Treating Reading Disabilities: The Specialist's Role.
Smith, Carl B.; And Others
One of four books directed to reading specialists, the text provides information on methods for identifying problems that can be efficiently treated in a remedial reading group and on methods for handling these problems. Consideration is given to the scope of the problem and to three categories of disabilities. Levels of diagnosis, types of tests, environmental factors, and the use of tests are discussed. Also discussed are the following: selection of children, remedial classes, special equipment, and guidelines for effective programs; the role of the reading coordinator, tutoring, small group instruction, reteaching reading, a saturation program, junior high classes, working with parents, and full use of equipment; and the establishment of a remedial program, the extent of need, the establishment of objectives, personnel needs, the creation of facilities, purchase of material, schedules of treatment, regular evaluation, reports of results, and inservice programs. Appendixes include diagnostic and correctional procedures for specific reading skills and methods for individualizing instruction. (WW)
