Three intervention programs (psychomotor, self-esteem enhancement, and direct instruction) were conducted with 40 children who had reading difficulties. The direct instruction program resulted in the greatest gains. Post-intervention questionnaires completed by subjects, parents, and teachers indicated that perceived success differed significantly from measured success. (CH)
