"Guidance in Developmental Reading," section 2, deals with guidance in beginning reading, continued guidance in the primary grades, reading development in the intermediate grades, guidance in the junior high school, and high school and college reading. Section 3, addresses educational and vocational guidance problems, dropouts, delinquency and discipline problems, and emotional problems and reading difficulties. Section 4, "Guidance in the Reading Development of Exceptional Children," deals with the mentally retarded, able learners, severe reading disability cases, and the physically handicapped. The last section, "The Team Approach," looks at the contribution of the counselor, the contribution of the reading specialist, and the preparation which they need. (WR)
