Abstract

This paper folio provides a review of the current literature on reading disability in an effort to bring together relevant information for parents and practitioners who work with reading disabled children. The first section. Reading and Reading Disability, will begin with a definition and analysis of normal reading development and then use this as a point of reference to conceptualize reading disability, its development as well as its distinction from garden variety poor reading. The second section of this folio. Definition and Identification of Reading Disability, will discuss the emergence of reading disability from the field of learning disabilities, the identification and measurement of reading disability as well as problems with current definitions and identification procedures. The final section of this folio. Early Identification. Intervention and Remediation, will focus on prevention, early intervention and/or remediation of reading disability in young children. Additionally, it will make suggestion for parents and professionals who work with reading disabled children.
