Diagnosis and Correction of Reading Problems
Morris, Darrell
Guilford Publications
In this highly informative text, Darrell Morris offers detailed, practical guidance based on decades of hands-on experience as a reading clinician and educator. He demonstrates how to conduct a comprehensive diagnostic assessment; interpret reading scores; and provide individualized instruction that takes each student's specific strengths and weaknesses into account. Case studies bring to life the book's one-to-one strategies for struggling beginning readers, older remedial readers (second- to sixth-grade reading levels), and those with severe reading disabilities. Small-group and whole-class applications are discussed, and a special chapter describes an exemplary teacher training approach. Helpful appendices feature ready-to-use assessment tools, book lists, and other reproducibles. Following an introductory chapter, this book is divided into three parts. Part I, Diagnosing Reading Problems, presents: (2) Administering an Informal Reading Diagnosis; (3) Interpretation of Reading Scores; and (4) Beyond the Initial Reading Diagnosis. Part II, Correcting Reading Problems, continues with: (5) Preventing Reading Problems in the Early Grades; (6) Correcting Reading Problems in the Later Grades: I. Basic Teaching Strategies; and (7) Correcting Reading Problems in the Later Grades: II. Case Studies. Part III, Training Reading Teachers, concludes with: (8) Clinical Training for Teachers of Reading.
