A Profile of Children Who Attend the Indiana University Southeast Reading Clinic.
Ridout, Susan Ramp
A study examined the attitudes of participants of the Indiana University Southeast's Reading Clinic in New Albany, Indiana. Subjects, who ranged in age level from first through ninth grades (although few were past the sixth grade in school) were asked to complete a questionnaire. Data were gathered over 4 years and 214 (98%) of the clinic participants returned completed surveys. Results indicated that: (1) the subjects believed their reading problems were not severe, although their parents' evaluations of their reading problems reflected lower ratings; (2) the subjects were enthusiastic about coming to the reading clinic; (3) about 70% of the subjects had library cards, enjoyed reading to themselves and to others, and had received books as gifts; (4) only about 75% of the subjects enjoyed listening to someone else read. Findings suggest that reading clinic supervisors should look at this information with hope. (Two tables of data are included.) (RS)
