The Administrative Problems Involved in Executing Clinical Recommendations for the Treatment of Severe Reading Disorders Within an Ongoing Educational System.
Schiffman, Gilbert B.
Developing a program of treatment for dyslexic readers involves four major problems: (1) definition of the reading isability, (2) administrative and educational inertia, (3) organization of the treatment program, and (4) the need for evaluatio and research. There is great disagreement over definitions of reading disabilities, yet an effective program is based on a clear understanding of what the reading disability is. Administrators and educators often do not have the knowledge and understanding of reading disabilities and therefore will not lead or approve the development of treatment programs. Organization of a program is based on an appropriate structure; early identification of children with reading problems; the availability of space, staff, and materials; and trained teachers with eclectic approaches. Organization is often the most difficulty problem in setting up a program. Finally, there is a great need for research and evaluation of dyslexic children and of educational programs which are ffective in treating them. (AL)
