Treatment resistors

Mercer, Louise (2008) Treatment resistors. SPELD News, 40(3), pp. 21-22.


Treatment resistors, that is children whose reading skills have not responded to sustained periods of appropriate intervention, have long been the concern of parents, educators, clinicians and researchers. Rudolph Flesch's book of 1955, Why Johnny Can't Read and What You Can Do About It, sparked the "great (and largely continuing) debate" about appropriate instructional methods for teaching reading.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
