Designed to treat reading problems which are beyond the scope of regular classroom reading instruction, the clinic program provides for short, moderate, and long term remediation. Diagnosis of pupils referred by the schools is conducted by a team consisting of a reading clinician, psychologist, nurse and speech and hearing specialist. Based on the diagnostic screening, a highly organized instructional plan is written for each child. The child receives his individually prescribed remediation from a certified reading clinician for 1 hour a day, 5 days a week, for his assigned term. The ultimate objective of the clinic is to enable each child to benefit from regular classroom reading instruction upon completion of his remediation term. Children who test within a year of their reading expectancy level are released from the clinic and provided with followup service by special consultants. Inservice training, provision and interpretation of diagnostic and remedial information, and consultative assistance are additional services the clinic provides. The clinic diagnosed about 730 pupils during the 1969-70 school year and remediated 532 of these children. (Author/WR)
