The problem of what to do with the poor reader and the non-reader of the third grade has disturbed the author for several years. Solutions in the form of preventative measures beginning in the first grade, do not effect the problem immediately. In schools where no such measures have been taken, a class of third grade poor readers and non-readers is always at hand, and something should be done with them before they leave the primary grades.
