This book may be large; still, it is filled with resources galore! The chapters speak for themselves and are entitled; What are Reading Disabilities?, General Guidelines and Materials for Diagnosing Reading Disabilities, Ready-To-Use Materials for Diagnosing Disabilities in the Word-Identification Techniques, Ready-To-Use Materials for Diagnosing Disabilities in Comprehension and basic Study Skills, Ready-To-Use Strategies and Activities for Correcting Disabilities in Word-Identification Techniques, and Ready-To-Use Strategies and Activities for Correcting Disabilities in Comprehension and Basic Study Skills. Each of the above chapters are filled with wonderful ready to use assessments and remediations. Some of my favorite goodies in the book include; Emergent Literacy Behavioral Checklist, Primary Checklist For Teacher Observation of a Child's Reading Skills, the explanation of Running Records, the Graded Word Lists, the tests for Assessing Sight-Word Recognition in Context, and the games included for teaching different reading skills. I use a variety of the many tests in this book as a pre-assessment at the start of the year and a post assessment at the end of the year. The book was well worth the money for me and is used often in my K-3 Resource Room.
