Summary

The relationships of three personality concepts, differentiation, esteem, and individualism, to reading achievement and disability were explored. Thirty-two boys and 16 girls, age 7 to 14 with 1 to 6 years reading retardation at the University of Delaware reading study center were matched with successful readers of the same age and sex. The school and college ability test and the sequential tests of educational progress were used to match the groups. All subjects were tested individually with a nonverbal test involving four tasks to determined the extent of differentiation, esteem, and individualism in their concepts. Achievement on each task by the two groups is reported and discussed. Retarded readers were characterized by a relatively high degree of dependency. Suggestions are made for remedial treatment emphasizing individual effort. References are given. This article is published in "the reading teacher,"" volume 19, November 1965. (ls)
