    Prevalence:
    • The prevalence of reading disability is another issue on which there is no consensus. The lack of consensus is due, to a large degree, to variability in defining reading disability. For example, studies vary in the cutoff score used for identifying poor reading and in the size of the discrepancy between reading and expected level used for such identification.

    • Between 60% and 80% of children diagnosed with reading disorder are boys.
    • For various reasons often related to behavior, boys tend to be referred more frequently to special education classes, which suggest that girls with reading disorder may be under diagnosed. Some experts think that this disparity comes about because boys are more often disruptive in class.

    and aptitude.
    • Other areas of assessment may include perception, cognition, memory, attention, and language abilities. The resulting information is used to determine whether a child's academic performance is commensurate with his or her cognitive ability. If a child's cognitive ability is much higher than his or her academic performance, the student is often diagnosed with a learning disability.
    • There are three basic classroom tests you can use to determine if there might be a reading comprehension problem- Cloze testing, Questioning, and Retelling.

    What are the Best Educational Practices:
    ...
    programs are:
    • Sound/symbol (phonics)-based. They break words down into their smallest visual components: letters and the sounds associated with them.
    • Multi-sensory. Good programs attempt to form and strengthen mental associations among visual, auditory, and kinesthetic channels of stimulation. The student simultaneously sees, feels, and says the sound-symbol association. For example, a student may trace the letter or letter combination with his or her finger while pronouncing a word out loud.

    and analyze.
    • In addition, the brain must integrate visual cues with memory and associate them with specific sounds. The sounds must then be associated with specific meanings. For comprehension, the meanings must be retained while a sentence or passage is read. Reading disorder occurs when any of these processes are disrupted. For that reason, the roots of reading disorder have proved difficult to isolate, and may be different in different individuals.

    {http://bryanking.net/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/disorders_of_written_expression.jpg} Disorders of Written Expression,writing disorders,LEARNING DISABILITY
    Problems in producing writing that do not seem to be linked to a child’s overall intelligence.
    Individuals with writing disorders typically have problems in several areas of writing, such as sentence structure, punctuation, spelling, or generating ideas and language in written form. Their ability to express concepts in writing may generally be far more limited than their ability to do so in spoken language, or it may be consistent with their oral-language functioning. In some cases the quality of the writing produced may be the primary difficulty; this might include problems with syntax, word meanings, spelling, grammar, or structure and organization.

    Special Challenges for General Education:
    • Some of these students have physical pain during the writing process. Easing that pain so they can complete and assignment is necessary.
