Reading Disability: A Human Approach to Learning. Third Edition, Revised & Expanded.
Roswell, Florence G.; Natchez, Gladys
This book organizes the subject of reading disability under the following headings: basic considerations, diagnosis, and treatment. Chapters under the basic-considerations heading explore the causes and neurological and psychological bases of reading disability and psychotherapeutic principles in remedial reading instruction. Two chapters investigate the diagnosis of reading disability by teachers and by psychologists or learning specialists. Treatment of reading disability is discussed under the following chapter topics: methods of teaching word recognition to children; application of word-recognition techniques; basic comprehension, study skills, and vocabulary; high school and college students with marked comprehension and expressive writing difficulties; remedial techniques for older pupils with severe reading disability; and the bright high school student who is not achieving up to capacity. Twenty-seven individual and group case studies serve as illustrative examples of the textual material; and appendixes provide lists of representative tests, selected books by grade and age level, workbooks, games, word lists, and publishers' names and addresses.
