Hall, Eleanor Thurston – Annals of Dyslexia, 1982
Teachers should know language structure when dealing with the diagnosis of pupils' language difficulties. Simple solutions, such as proofreading his/her work, underlining, and transcribing paragraph dictation may be suggested for students once the teacher grasps the sound/symbol/syllable structure of English.

Karnes, Lucia Rooney – Annals of Dyslexia, 1982
The author describes an evaluation of persons with suspected learning disabilities. Two types of tests are considered (mental maturity and basic language skills) and examples of each are given. Sample profiles exhibiting irregular development of aptitudes are provided and observations from informal as well as formal assessment are suggested. (CL)

Carlisle, Joanne F. – Annals of Dyslexia, 1983
Fifteen exercises are presented that are intended to increase reading comprehension in seventh and eighth graders via emphasis on word recognition, language comprehension (syntax and semantics), and reasoning skills (including inference, analogies, relationships, and direction following). (CL)

Cox, Aylett R. – Annals of Dyslexia, 1983
The article describes the Alphabetic Phonics Teacher Training Programs which focuses on incorporating multisensory instruction with a more "old-fashioned" phonics-first basic presentation of reading for dyslexic children. Suggestions are made for infusing the approach into the regular classroom and into teacher preparation programs. (CL)

Greenwood, Julia Ann; And Others – Annals of Dyslexia, 1983
Three papers focus on adapting typical college preparatory curricula for dyslexic secondary students. The rationale and necessity for such adaptation are examined in the first, while the second addresses three major problems (too much information, lack of prepackaged curricula, lack of basic skills). The final paper considers classroom application…

Burrows, Dian; Wolf, Beverly – Annals of Dyslexia, 1983
Multisensory techniques can be used to provide opportunities for creative expression for children with specific language disabilities. Dramatics, art, movement activities, music, poetry, and dancing can help meet the children's emotional needs while also enhancing their self-concepts. (CL)

Sawyer, Diane J.; Butler, Katharine – Annals of Dyslexia, 1991
This paper discusses five language roots of reading: phonology, syntax, semantics, short-term and long-term memory, and auditory segmenting. Teachers are urged to focus early school experiences toward development of these five skills to reduce the incidence of reading difficulties. Specific teaching suggestions are offered. (Author/DB)

Butler, Susan R. – Annals of Dyslexia, 1991
The Reading Assistance Tutorial (R.A.T.) Pack is a systematic, multidisciplinary remedial reading program incorporating listening, speaking, seeing, writing, thinking, and comprehension skills. The sequenced activities demand a high percentage of on-task behavior and train phonological processing strategies and functional language use. Research…

Aaron, P. G.; And Others – Annals of Dyslexia, 1988
Reading-disabled children (n=36) in grades four through eight were matched for reading comprehension and placed into two groups based on listening comprehension. Poor readers with normal listening comprehension had average or above intelligence quotients, conforming to the traditional definition of dyslexia and contrasting with poor readers with…

Leong, Che Kan – Annals of Dyslexia, 1988
A model for understanding reading, containing three components (orthographic/phonological, morphological, and sentence and paragraph comprehension) was tested with 298 preadolescent readers. Maximum likelihood analyses showed that the model provides a good fit for the grade 4 data, a reasonable fit for grade 5, but was less unambiguous for grade…

Manis, Franklin R.; And Others – Annals of Dyslexia, 1988
Forty normal readers and 50 dyslexic children (age 9-14) were matched on reading level and intelligence quotient and tested. Analysis revealed 3 major subgroups: specific deficit in phonological processing of print (52 percent), deficits in processing both the phonological and orthographic features of printed words (24 percent), and phonological…

Paul-Brown, Diane – Annals of Dyslexia, 1988
This paper describes the development and application of individualized intervention procedures in a classroom for preschool language-impaired children. Language development principles utilized in the program focus on determining the setting, timing, interactive participants, purpose, and content. Resulting changes in language comprehension and…

Henry, Marcia K. – Annals of Dyslexia, 1988
A discussion-oriented, direct approach to teaching decoding and spelling based on word origin and structure is proposed. The instruction leads students to a comparison and contrast of letter-sound correspondences, syllable patterns, and morpheme patterns in English words of Anglo-Saxon, Romance, and Greek origin.

Richardson, Sylvia O. – Annals of Dyslexia, 1989
The paper traces the histories of several language disorders and the recommended educational treatment for them. It covers the historical events in medicine and education that have contributed to the confusion in relation to aphasia, dyslexia, and perceptual-motor disorders. (JDD)

Catts, Hugh W. – Annals of Dyslexia, 1989
The paper discusses problems with traditional definitions of dyslexia and reviews research that suggests a more comprehensive definition, viewing dyslexia as a developmental language disorder that involves a deficit in phonological processing. The disorder is seen as manifesting itself in various phonological difficulties as well as in a specific…
