A Guided Procedure for Using a Case Method in the Diagnosis and Treatment of Reading Disorders.
Kutzman, Sondra K.; Rakes, Thomas A.
Teacher educators and college level instructors may use a guided procedure for training classroom teachers and reading specialists to diagnose reading disorders utilizing case studies. The procedure involves distributing a detailed case study outline to students, with all important information that should be included in the case report also provided as a handout. This guided format encourages concrete, practical case report writing experiences that train students in reporting test data, summarizing results, and offering practical recommendations for parents and educators. Students then check their completed reports against an accompanying sample case report provided for each type of procedure. One form of the procedure is intended for use by classroom teachers, while another form is for use in training reading specialists in preparing diagnostic reports. (Copies of the sample case studies are included.) (AEA)
