Many disabled readers do not respond to instruction by the classroom teacher. Approximately three per cent of the school population requires detailed diagnosis and treatment, generally implemented by the reading clinician and his team. These emergency cases necessitate allopathic treatment which is carried out by the reading therapist. In this paper the writer contrasts homeopathic and allopathic remediation and illustrates the latter in its application to a disabled reader. A rigorous system of diagnosis and treatment is recommended.
