Billy's mother is coming in this afternoon to talk to me about his reading problems. She called on the phone and wants to help. What will I tell her? Will she expect to go home with an armload of books and materials and feel that the problem is well on the way to being solved? Since there is, for many reasons, as much variation in parents and home situations as there is in reading disabilities this is not an easy question to answer. There are no "pat" answers for all parents of disabled readers any more than there is one method of teaching reading that will work with all children.
