In another blog post, we shared “How to Improve Reading Fluency and Reading Comprehension and Executive Function skills for your child.
In this blog post we will discuss, “Why to Improve Reading Fluency and Reading Comprehension and Executive Function Skills for Your Child”.
Note, while Reading Fluency and Reading Comprehension and Executive Function skills are an issue for half our students, half of students just have Reading Comprehension and Executive Function issues.
A number of parents have shared, “My child reads beautifully, but they do not understand what they read”.
Let’s consider 12 reasons why you might want to improve Reading Fluency and Reading Comprehension and Executive Function skills now!!! Consider all 12, because in most cases there are 3, 5 and even 7 or more reasons why now is the time to act.
1, The most pressing reasons include:
a) Grade retention is an issue and reading comprehension and executive function skills need to be improved
b) Getting into a specific private school is dependent on improving your child’s test scores and again reading comprehension and executive function skills need to be improved
c) Your child is going to a new school and you want them better prepared to succeed
2. You just invested in a psycho-educational evaluation, and they made some recommendations, you know you need and you understand the need to act.
3. You realize the distinction between:
a) Reading fluency — being able to accurately and efficiently read a passage
b) Reading comprehension – being able to understand what he or she reads
c) Executive function skills — where working memory, attention and/or processing speed negatively impact results
And you realize all these issues need to be addressed to help your child succeed.
4. You recognize that kids like yours often fall further and further behind. Even worse, schools have so many kids who have fallen far behind, it is impossible for your child to catch up.
5. You become aware of a different way of teaching that focuses on both teaching to your child’s strengths and identifying and addressing their challenges.
6. The anxiety and frustration your child is feeling is taxing on them and you. You know they feel bad about their performance and you want to address the issue ASAP.
7. Your child’s struggles with reading fluency and reading comprehension are not new, but now they are impacting science, social studies and math, where there is more reading than ever.
8. Your child’s test scores are low and their public or charter school is recommending a double or triple dose of reading, and you do not think that will help. Even worse, it will deprive your child of their electives.
9. The private school they are at, are recommending either an expensive tutoring package, if you want your child to return to that school, or an even more expensive academy option. You want to know if there is a better option.
10. Homework or home school teaching is exhausting and frustrating. Acknowledge that next year is likely to be worse as the math word problems get tougher, the reading more challenging, and the work more demanding.
11. You want your child to love learning and to enjoy being a kid. You also want to trade in the hard work, for a far better way that leverages the talents of educators who know how to help your child succeed.
12. You realize that when you improve your child’s reading fluency and reading comprehension and executive function skills you can help them to be far more successful in school and in life.
