In this well-respected text, multiple approaches to teaching students with reading problems are presented with practical strategies, informal assessment tools, and extensive description of tests. This edition includes updated information on Response to Intervention (RTI), teaching reading to English Language Learners (ELL), special education, and the impact of the Common Core State Standards on literacy instruction and assessment.

A comprehensive survey of teaching strategies, formal and informal assessment, theory, and research, Reading Problems combines invaluable information from the field of reading with allied fields such as special education, bilingual education, medical science, and policy studies to provide a coherent framework for helping students with reading problems.

Here, teachers, reading specialists, and literacy coaches get hundreds of instructional strategies—many of them illustrated by the “Strategy Snapshots” and the “Case Studies” depicting examples of actual classroom use—ready to put to immediate use in their classrooms or programs. The practical, accessible, balanced, and readable approach to many different ways to teach students with reading problems incudes coverage of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act and Response to Intervention, and emphasizes teaching reading to ELL students and the inclusion of all students in general education classes.

The Seventh Edition encourages the collaboration of general education teachers and reading teachers; offers strategies for ELL students; discusses both formal and informal assessment; emphasizes early literacy for young children; covers both reading and writing; includes information on specific reading skills, word recognition, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension; updates on Special Education legislation; and covers RTI and Common Core State Standards.
