"Learning to read is a challenge for 30% of children today"
Traditional tutoring and reading recovery programs are not highly effective in helping students with reading disabilities or dyslexia. If a child is not able to decode printed material by the end of grade 3, there is a risk they will never catch up and that the learning gap will continue to grow with time. In many cases, children and students who struggle with reading or a reading disability are perfectly capable of reading and spelling at grade level when the appropriate teaching approach is used.
At Speech Therapists of Vancouver, our speech therapists utilize research and evidence based multi-sensory and direct instruction programs that have been shown to offer effective intervention and remediation for students with learning disabilities who are struggling with reading and spelling.
Reading to Learn
After the 3rd grade, students are expected to be able to read to learn. Reading comprehension difficulties frequently occur in students who are good at decoding and spelling and can severely impact upon their ability to read to learn and perform at grade level. The break down in reading can result from inadequate vocabulary, grammar, or syntatical skills, difficulties with organizing and interpreting written text effectively, poor self monitoring, and reduced working memory resulting in difficulties with retaining information long enough to be adequately processed, and difficulty with higher order thinking.
Nexus Therapy offer effective reading intervention programs that target the requisite skills to promote improved reading comprehension and information retention.
