The objectives of the Clinical Information Processes in Reading Project (CLIPIR) were to create simulated cases of reading difficulty, observe experienced reading diagnosticians as they interacted with those cases, and analyze the protocols of their proceedings. Cases were designed to represent commonly encountered reading difficulties. By observing clinicians diagnosing the cases, it was possible to identify how they gathered and interpreted the available information. After the protocols were analyzed, it was concluded that most clinicians base their diagnoses on a relatively small number of cues; that they entertain their first hypotheses very early in the session; and that despite variability in number of cues requested and amount of total elapsed time, clinicians ultimately identify correctly subjects' major difficulties.
