Disabled Readers: Insight, Assessment, Instruction.
Sawyer, Diane J., Ed.
Focusing on helping teachers to understand and help children who have reading disabilities, the 13 papers in this volume were prepared by practitioners at various levels from public school, community, and university settings. The papers included in part one offer insights into the concomitant aspects of reading difficulties. Specific topics discussed are perceptual bases for reading difficulties, the disabled adolescent reader, reading disability and family dynamics, and dyslexia. The papers in part two deal with aspects of assessment and planning for instruction. Topics covered are kindergarten diagnosis and training, reading diagnosis in the classroom, informal assessment of comprehension, adaptive assessment for nonacademic secondary reading, and psychoeducational diagnosis as inservice education. The papers in section three offer suggestions for instructional practices. Specific topics covered are practical suggestions for remedial teachers, sentence combining practice as an aid to reading comprehension, myopia, and teaching reading to the hearing impaired child.
