Locating and Correcting Reading Difficulties is an invaluable reading diagnostic and intervention handbook. Experienced teachers can use the comprehensive assessment resources to fortify the skills of a student while addressing any reading deficiencies present. Flexible strategies provide guidance for those working with any number of students. The authors provide twenty-four assessment appendices which house every classroom assessment tool needed to effectively monitor literacy progress.
Twenty-eight chapters discuss reading or reading-related abilities, how to recognize difficulty with each ability, and specific recommendations for correcting weaknesses. Some chapters list games and exercises to help correct reading difficulties. Each discussion section explains how to determine whether the difficulty needs treatment or is only a symptom of a more serious problem. Pages have perforations.
