The Effects of Three Methods of Teaching Reading to Reading Retarded Children with Different Degrees of Visual Function Difficulties.
Welch, Michael Warren
Evaluated during an 8-week period were the effects of three instructional reading methods for 36 reading retarded students (grades 4-6) with differing degrees of visual function difficulties (perceptual impairment rather than visual acuity problems). Ss were divided into two groups according to their high or low degree of visual function difficulties and were then randomly assigned to treatment groups utilizing Sullivan programed material augmented by tutoring and behavior modification, Sullivan material as directed in the teacher's guide, and Ginn basal reading materials augmented by a language experience approach. Results indicated that neither the instructional method nor the vision variable exerted significant influence on Ss' reading achievement during the 8-week period, although mean improvements tended to be higher for programed materials than for the language experience approach to reading.
