Freppon, Penny A.
Reading and Writing Quarterly: Overcoming Learning Difficulties, v10 n3 p227-38 Jul-Sep 1994
Presents a case study of a nine-year-old boy's reading and writing difficulties. Notes that instruction grounded in sociopsycholinguistics, whole language, and emergent literacy helped the learner overcome his difficulties. Provides an account of alternative approaches in assessing written language difficulties; and the role of the reader's belief system or written language concepts in literacy learning. (RS)
