Don't Forget Comprehension

Posted Jun 17 2009 8:03pm
While it is imperative that dyslexic children receive remediation in an Orton-Gillingham based, multisensory approach to language, we must not forget that dyslexic children may also struggle with comprehending what they read.

The research on what type of teaching strategy works best for teaching comprehension is inconclusive.

What we do know is that good readers:
-summarize ideas in their own words
-identify the main ideas
-self question about the ideas of the text
-use graphic and semantic organizers
-monitor their comprehension

Children must be taught how to comprehend what they read.

The Institute of Education Sciences is a leader in the research of effective comprehension strategies.
