It was the intent of this paper to provide the class­room teacher with a practical cursory background to be used as a guide on dyslexia, emphasizing the following areas: (1) a discussion of the term dyslexia as found in the re­search literature; (2) a brief etiological background; (3) characteristics; and (4) suggested remedial methods that have proven successful in the past. Major emphasis was placed on assisting the teacher in identifying the dyslexic child and presenting some remedial methods to be used. While a vast array of information has been accumulated on the subject of dyslexia, there exist noticeable gaps in interdisciplinary communication which have prevented full use of what is known (Westman, Arthur & Scheidler, 1973).
