Overview

In this highly informative text, Darrell Morris offers detailed, practical guidance based on decades of hands-on experience as a reading clinician and educator. He demonstrates how to conduct a comprehensive diagnostic assessment; interpret reading scores; and provide individualized instruction that takes each student's specific strengths and weaknesses into account. Case studies bring to life the book's one-to-one strategies for struggling beginning readers, older remedial readers (second- to sixth-grade reading levels), and those with severe reading disabilities. Small-group and whole-class applications are discussed, and a special chapter describes an exemplary teacher training approach. Helpful appendices feature ready-to-use assessment tools, book lists, and other reproducibles.
