The present study is a program evaluation designed to evaluate an elementary school remedial reading instructional program using Carr's model (1982) of reading ability. The "Learning to Read Better" program evolved from Anes' (1979a, 1979b, 1981) study and experience In teaching children with reading problems. The program is structured according to the components of the reading process, with time in the reading room and teaching responsibility allocated so that learning in each component occurs during every remedial session. Four key components of the reading process emphasized in this program are: visual-perceptual training, decoding, oral reading, and comprehension.
