Overview

Often students who struggle with reading and writing are told what they can't do, not what they can. This book, while focusing on the positive, provides thorough coverage of procedures for assessing and instructing struggling readers of all ages-from primary grades to adulthood.

Jargon-free, it is written in a clear style and is packed with examples from real classrooms and clinics. Teachers and literacy instructors/clinicians.
