In this chapter, we will first lay the groundwork and present reading as a cognitive activity. Then we will provide a discussion of PASS 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, we conclude this chapter by reporting results from an ongoing longitudinal study utilizing both PASS and PREP.
