This book explores how to prevent reading difficulties in the context of social, historical, cultural, and biological factors. Contrasting the impaired progress of children with reading difficulties with so-called normal progress, this book examines the factors that put children at risk of poor reading. It explores in detail how to foster literacy from birth through kindergarten and the primary grades, including the evaluation of philosophies, systems, and materials commonly used to teach reading.
