Preen, Bryan S.; Townsend, Diana O.
Reading and Writing Quarterly: Overcoming Learning Difficulties, v9 n1 p81-102 Jan-Mar 1993
Suggests that "Johnny can't read" because of high testosterone levels in fetal development and subsequent poor brain lateralization. Presents instructional strategies based on the principle of factorized teaching for each of three discrete lateralization categories. Notes that the use of factorized teaching appears to have improved diagnostic and instructional precision and produced speedier and more enduring remediation. (RS)
