Improve inferencing skills for better reading and language comprehension

Approximately 10% of primary school-aged children have poor reading and oral language comprehension skills relative to age-appropriate word-reading skills. These children – poor “comprehenders” – are often not picked up within classrooms because they can sound out (“decode”) words and read sentences just like good reading comprehenders.

We need to find these children early, and then help them to develop their comprehension skills.
