Chapter topics are reading ability and disability; readiness for reading; beginning reading instruction; mature reading; meeting individual needs in reading; efficient reading instruction in groups; reading disability, dyslexia, and learning disabilities; assessing reading performance; physical, physiological, cultural, and cognitive correlates of reading disability; basic principles of remedial reading; developing word identification skills; remedial procedures for deficiencies in word identification skills; improving reading comprehension; fostering reading interests and tastes; and increasing rate of reading.
