The Problem of Reading Retardation

Reading and learning to read are fascinating subjects. Holly and I both had undergraduate degrees in education and we have quite a few lively discussions on techniques and child development. We have come a long way in understanding how the developing child learns to read. For the most part, teachers during my time were breaking students into 2 groups: regular and special: there was no room for nuance. Toward the end of the 1980s and in the 1990s, there was real progress in diagnosis and treatment of dyslexia. In addition, accommodation to students with learning issues were very much a part of mainstream schooling.

Another ALB spy sent this lovely book to us. Think of it as a companion title to the crafts book! Thankfully, it has been weeded from the collection. Last time I checked WorldCat, this book was in university collections and a few large public libraries, which is probably appropriate for this title. I also must confess it took me quite a while to realize that is some kind of bird on the cover.
