I have written this book to put forward a new theory of reading — the cognitive clarity theory. But the book is not all theory. I have tried to show how this theory can help students, teachers and parents to improve children’s education in reading at home and at school. Although the cognitive clarity theory is new, it is derived from other theories and from a wide range of educational, linguistic and psychological research. The cognitive clarity theory is thus a bringing together of the insights of many colleagues in these disciplines. What the theory owes to these colleagues is clearly acknowledged as the evidence is presented.
