Lays the groundwork and presents reading as a cognitive activity. The authors] provide a discussion of Planning, Attention, Simultaneous processing, and Successive processing (PASS) theory of intelligence (J. P. Das et al, 1994) and the PASS Reading Enhancement Program (PREP) that focuses on cognitive remediation of reading problems. This description is followed by a review of PREP studies. Finally, the authors] conclude the chapter by reporting results from an ongoing longitudinal study utilizing both PASS and PREP. The theoretical underpinnings of remediation that the authors] have illustrated include the Vygotskian notion of expanding children's zones of proximal development, a notion that is clearly manifested in the mediated learning and instrumental enrichment research of R. Feuerstein. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016 APA, all rights reserved)
