University Reading Clinics--A New Look.
Olson, Joanne; And Others
To function effectively, a reading specialist must be trained to diagnose reading difficulties, prescribe and implement appropriate treatment, and work effectively with both teachers and children in an interpersonal environment. As an alternative solution to the traditional campus reading clinic, a dual based clinic was established with theory and reading methods classes meeting at the university and the inservice practicum taking place at a nearby high school. The program provided preservice education for undergraduate students, inservice training for reading specialists, teachers, and teachers' aides, and research opportunities for doctoral students. After students completed the university theory courses, they became involved in the public school learning center as part of one of three teams: the front line team--those working directly with children, analyzing their reading problems and planning appropriate courses of study; the back-up team--those learning to diagnose reading problems and to design remedial procedures; and the research team--doctoral students who carry out research related to the operation of the clinic.
