The teaching of reading in New Zealand special classes
thesisposted on 13.12.2021, 02:07 by Irwin, Marie Mildred
All too frequently the standard work on reading disability dismisses the problem of the slow-learning child in a few lines. Few authorities on reading have attempted to trace, systematically, the implications of their reading research for the child of low intelligence. As a teacher of special class children I feel that one is only free to experiment with the practical and social aspects of special education when a systematic programme, adapted to the needs of low intelligence children, has minimised the difficulties of academic instruction.
