The Case for the Narrow View of Reading

The fundamental problem with a broad view of reading is that it conflates two very different abilities—word recognition and comprehension. The narrow view restricts the scope of reading to word recognition, thereby focusing on a skill that can be taught to all students except those with most severe disabiliities. This clinical forum presents a rationale for embracing the narrow view of reading, followed by responses from leading researchers and clinicians.
