Dyslexia and Severe Reading Disability.
Ngandu, Kathleen M.
This handbook contains advice for the teacher in diagnosing dyslexia and developing an individualized program for overcoming severe reading problems. Observable characteristics of dyslexia are listed as an aid to the teacher's diagnosis, but it is emphasized that cooperation between the teacher and a reading specialist is of great importance in developing effective instructional plans. Fifty effective instructional strategies are listed which highlight many teaching techniques and ideas that have been successfully used with severely disabled readers in classroom as well as in clinical settings. A list of resources with additional information about dyslexia and severe reading disability is included. (JD)
