Preventing Reading Difficulties in Young Children - The National Research Council's Committee on the Prevention of Reading Difficulties in Young Children examined a broad base of research on reading development; risk factors that lead to reading difficulties; and prevention, intervention and instructional strategies to ensure strong reading performance. In addition, the book provides a series of recommendations to improve reading performance and instruction for all students, with a particular focus on children at risk of learning to read. The committee also published Starting Out Right: A Guide to Promoting Children's Reading Success in 1999, which provides specific recommendations from researchers on how to help children become successful readers. Both publications can be found on the NRC Web site (National Research Council, March 1998)....
