Targeted Interventions for Reading Disabilities
Coeur d' Alene Press (ID)
As many as 20 percent of children struggle with a reading disability (RD). In fact, children with RD account for 80 percent of the children with learning disabilities. Considering the number of children that are affected, there is a considerable amount of research done to understand RD and interventions for remediation. We know that children with RD struggle with many different types of deficits related to language. This is important because we need to get out of the mindset that there is one type of intervention for all children with RD. It is critical to understand a child's specific problems with reading in order to provide targeted, research-based intervention.
