ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the classroom teacher's responsibility to retarded readers in the U.S. It follows that if a teacher is to explain the causes to parents, she must be very conversant with causes. More important, she should be concerned about causes and sensitive to their symptoms. It is only under these conditions that she will be able to detect possibilities of disturbances and take active steps to have them corrected in their early stages. A good teacher must have all the patience in dealing with students who have reading difficulties. This is because, scolding can sometimes worsen the disability in children. Although there are many causes of reading disability, one cannot overlook the fact that there are shortages in instruction. Thus, an effective teacher can only be beneficial when combined with an improved instruction systems.
