Teaching Reading to Brain-Damaged Children: A Review.
Reed, James C.; And Others
The literature on teaching reading to brain-damaged children was reviewed for the period 1960 to 1970. Only nine articles represented experimental investigations of the problem. These articles were examined with respect to the adequacy of reporting information and data concerning the diagnosis of brain damage. The criteria for diagnosing brain damage were generally inadequate or nonexistent. There was little evidence to suggest that children with chronic neurological impairment at the level of the cerebral hemispheres require or benefit from teaching procedures which differ from those used for reading retardates without brain damage. Advantages and limitations of various neurological tests are discussed. Recommendations are made for standards to be followed in documenting brain damage in research studies on the teaching of reading to brain-damaged children. A bibliography is included. (Author/CM)
