Comprehension skill training
Reading the written word is just reading, but understanding the written word is comprehension. Many children are not aware of comprehension and believe that they just have to read what is in the books. No one has trained them in comprehension. It is like reading an alien language because you know how to read but not understanding one word of it.
Comprehension skills training goes further than just reading skills. There are many strategies that a Special Educator will employ to help with the comprehension skills of children.
