When Your Child Can't Read.
Blanchet, Eileen
The fact that our school system is not prepared to help neurologically impaired children nor able to understand the difficulties these children face prompted the writing of this guide for parents. Acceptance of the child and his problem and the ridding of your own and his anxieties are first requirements for successful parental assistance. A careful assessment of the child's gross motor control is required before expecting him to attempt the fine motor control necessary for printing and reading. Discrimination of sounds and a phonic approach are not an absolute for learning to read; memorization may achieve less stressful and more positive results for these children. The emotional well being of the child--developing a sense of accomplishment and of worth, succeeding at a task--is a paramount responsibility of a parent. Descriptions of skill areas, sample lessons, and numerous suggestions for activities and materials with brief explanations of how the activity can help the child provide the bulk of the guide. (TO)
