One of the areas that we emphasize in our dyslexia tutoring program is reading comprehension. For dyslexic students, reading comprehension can be problematic and challenging. One cause of this difficulty is simply reading fluency; if a dyslexic student cannot read well, then they will have trouble understanding what they are reading. For this reason, our dyslexia tutors emphasize reading fluency as a large part of comprehension. Another challenge comes from the fact that many students with dyslexia have short term or long term memory challenges, and a dyslexia tutor needs to keep this in mind when addressing reading comprehension.
Fortunately, reading comprehension can be improved with practice, and that is why we place emphasis on it in our online tutoring program. There are strategies and techniques that can make a huge difference in a student’s ability to comprehend what they read. A dyslexia tutor is able to teach a student to apply these techniques in a methodical manner that will improve their performance with any written material.
