This collection of papers discusses various theoretical, clinical, and assessment issues in reading and writing delays and disorders. Topics include the following: integrating different theoretical approaches (cognitive psychology, neuropsychology, constructivism) into clinical approaches to reading and writing difficulties; difficulties of kindergartners in understanding the concept of reading and writing; a comparison of spelling, oral reading, and reading content in whole language and phonics-oriented first grade classes; the connection between visual processing and dyslexia; a reading evaluation tool for students with personality and behavior troubles; the use of writing by a deaf student; the role of the speech therapist in charge of deaf children in bilingual education; connections between difficulties in reading and writing and in accepting social norms; a therapeutic method for remediating surface dysgraphia; using "metagraphic explanations" with students with severe spelling difficulties; a comparison of text production between students with and without dysorthographia; a longitudinal analysis of text production; a didactic sequence for teaching/learning narrative discourse; and reflections on teaching versus therapy.
