Clay, Marie M.
Based on information gained in two longitudinal research studies of the beginning reading process, this book offers insights into the detection and prevention of reading failure. The 13 chapters of the book deal with the following topics: barriers to the early identification of reading problems, preschool experiences, school entry, early reading behavior and language development, an introduction to print, directional learning and concepts about print, early integration of skills, learning to read with natural language texts, first reading books, error analysis, classroom environment, the visual perception of print, and the organization of reading behavior.
