Does the "Correct" Label Help and What Teaching Strategies Work?
Gaskins, Irene West
This paper argues that such components of a remedial program as formal tests, labels, and methods which teach to symptoms are unnecessary. Labeling is discussed in depth and some of the positive and negative factors which are associated with labeling are described. The ingredients of a successful remediation program include a good teacher who can create a special interpersonal relationship with a child, organize a structured diagnostic teaching environment, and select the best reading methods and materials for each child. Another ingredient of a successful remediation program is Parents who have been counseled to understand their child's learning difference, who understand that remediation takes time, and who have faith in and offer support to their child.
