During the scholastic year 1934-35, fourteen pupils whose reading ability was below the grade requirements and who in the opinion of the principal and teachers required special instruction were assigned to the writer. These pupils were taken from the first, second, third and fourth grades.

It is my purpose in this paper to describe the effort and from my experience I trust that a better way might be found to handle this problem. This paper will discuss briefly: a. The class b. The diagnosis of the cases-physical, mental and environmental. c. The psychological principles involved. d. The remedial agencies employed. e. Results.
