The Boarding Alternative for Young Dyslexic Children.
Scheidler, Thomas D.
In a question-and-answer format, this pamphlet offers a rationale for having students with dyslexia attend a junior boarding school. The information focuses on: criteria for determining appropriateness of a specialized boarding program; most appropriate age for referral; helping parents deal with their anxiety; benefits of a boarding school over tutors and resource room programs; benefits of attending boarding school before the high-school level; benefits of attending a special school with a dyslexia program over a regular junior boarding school; emphasis in these schools on sports in which dyslexic students traditionally excel; and the structure of remedial boarding schools.
