Attitudes toward Reading of the Disabled Reader and the Normal Reader.
A study investigated the attitudes normal and disabled readers have toward reading to determine if differences existed between the two groups. Subjects, 40 normal readers and 40 students from remedial classes in grades 3 through 6, each completed the Estes Attitude scale. The results indicated a significant difference in attitudes toward reading between normal and disabled readers: 35 of the normal readers had positive attitudes toward reading, while 28 of the disabled readers had positive attitudes. Specific findings indicated that disabled readers, more than normal readers, considered reading to be boring and for learning rather than for enjoyment. (FL)
