Reading type for children.
  1. G M Maclure


    Young children experience difficulty with the present reading charts, and it may not be easy to decide whether this is due to visual problems or is associated with a deficient reading ability of the material presented to them. A reading chart has therefore been designed containing material graded according to the expected average ability for different age groups. The earlier grades use 'school script' print as well as Times Roman, which is used entirely for the older age groups. Selected words, reduced distance charts, a school script distance chart, and a standard distance chart, as well as some coloured pictures, are included.
