Heading Difficulties Associate Professor, William T. Fagan, writing for teachers in Elements, a little paper is- sued by the above department has an interesting article on reading difficulties and the be- ginner. He is concerned with the problem of diagnosis and in one section captioned 'Word Recognition' he lists -a variety of. observations the teacher can make. The parents can become engaged in this effort, too. 1. Does the child fail to pro- nounce words. Is he unable to go on unless he is assisted in the word pronunciation? (Five seconds is usually enought time to pronounce n word.) 2. Does he omit words when he is reading orally? 3. Does he substitute one word for another and, if so. are these similar in configuration to the words in the passage? Are they similar in initial, or f inal consonant, or vowel sound? Do the substituted words make sense within the context? 4. Does a child attempt to "sound out" words or does he quickly substitute aa incorrect word? 5. Is he a word-by-word reader rather than a reader of phrases? 6. Is he careless in noting, punctuation marks and in mak- ing the appropriate pauses? 7. Does he tend to repeat words or phrases? 8. When he is reading silent- ly, does he tend to be a lip reader? 9. Does he use his knowledge of sound-symbol relationships in spelling words? The article goes on to other parts in the battle to make pro- ficient readers. Even the non- teacher, the parent of tire child, should be able to make use if he or she does some quiet ob- servation alone. If a problem is diagnosed, the classroom teach- er should be contacted and ad- vice requested remember- ing that the teacher may have thirty others under her wing. of Elementary Education.
