Treating Reading Difficulties.
Smith, Carl B.; And Others
Introduced by a look at the general problem of reading difficulties, the text discusses the roles of the principal, teacher, specialist, and administrator in treating the problem. The principal's responsibility, identification, home and family influence, environmental improvement, evaluating reading skills, leadership, and case studies of successful programs are described. Also examined are primary learning difficulties and current approaches to the problem, establishing a clinic program, University Reading Clinics, and a sample book list for a reading clinic. Classroom techniques are suggested for diagnosing reading problems, correction in groups and individually, and correction of specific problems found by diagnosis. The role of the specialist is also established for the diagnosis and treatment of reading problems. Methods of handling reading disability within a school are presented, and procedures are illustrated for establishing a program and correcting specific reading skills. (JM)
