9780140266979: Why Children Can't Read: And What We Can Do About it

This text provides an approach to dealing with literacy problems. The author combines her own scientific and clinical experience with a synthesis of modern research on reading, to show how different methods of teaching reading could successfully improve standards of literacy. The book examines the construction of writing systems and how they can be taught, along with research on writing programmes that work for everyone, including adults and children who cannot read a word. Focusing on the sounds of language, McGuinness proposes a reading scheme capable of teaching every child to read by logical steps.
