Reading Disability Experiment, Innovation and Individual Therapy.
Jackson, M. S.
This book includes five reports of educational therapeutic work done with reading disabled children. Reports 1-3 describe innovative procedures practiced with individual children. Report 2 describes an experiment with a group of young children who in their second year at school had made scarcely any progress in reading. The procedures described, while specifically designed to aid severely disabled readers (dyslexics), have also been found to be beneficial to ordinary children. The approach described in report 1 is particularly suited to the secondary school pupil who is failing. The apparatus described in report 2 has been used with success not only to assist in reading but also to teach spelling at all levels. Report 4 discusses the tactics used by the parents of a reading disabled child to teach her to read. Report 5 discusses the reading process in relation to disabled readers. (Author/WR)
