The ability to read constitutes one of the most valuable skills a person can acquire. Our world is a reading world. It is difficult to discover any activity, whether in school or in the house, on the farm, in business, in the professions, and even in recreational pursuits, that does not demand some, and often considerable, reading. For the mentally retarded reading is not an easy task, not a quickly learned one. They seldom become highly proficient; the extent of the reading ability for most ranges from third to fifth grade; most achieving the fourth grade criterion for literacy.
