Why Improving Reading Comprehension is Critical for Your Smart Struggling Child

Reading comprehension is a significant issue for many of the students we are seeing.  For the bright right brain kinesthetic learner, the gaps are often wider.  As summer approaches, parents are often faced with the challenge of finding productive and beneficial activities for their children. One investment that should be at the top of many parent’s lists is a summer reading comprehension program. Reading comprehension is a fundamental skill that lays the foundation for academic success and lifelong learning. 

In this blog post, we will explore the reasons why parents should prioritize investing in a reading comprehension program during the summer months.

Your child may be far below grade level in reading comprehension.  Unless this is addressed, their reading comprehension may continue to fall further behind, this will impact performance in all their subjects and homework time and stress will continue to increase.

Your child is a lot smarter than their present reading comprehension level.

You found a program that can significantly improve your child’s reading comprehension, processing skills and their self-confidence.  3D Learner has helped students whose parents have invested in our program to improve their:

   Reading comprehension 2, 3 and even 4 grade levels over the next 4 to 6 months.  

   Attention, working memory and visual processing, with improvements in reading speed, reduced homework time and stress and improvement in athletics

   Self-confidence, while lowering anxiety.  

Two examples

One student was 2 years below grade level at a private school  His parents were told to find a different school.  They asked if their son could stay if they invested in a program that produced significant reading comprehension gains.  After completing our program, their son improved his reading comprehension 3 grade levels in a year.  His teacher said “He made more progress in a year than any student I had in 27 years of teaching”, Ms Brown, Md.

One student was at the 48th percentile in reading comprehension, despite a 115 IQ.  The principal said the parents did not need to take any action, adding “Someone has to be average”.  Mom became a mom on a mission.  With our help, she improved her reading comprehension to the 95th percentile, her self-confidence soared the she went from a quiet introvert to an active leader in the band.

To avoid the summer slide

The “summer slide” refers to the loss of academic skills and knowledge that students experience during the long break from school. Research has shown that children who do not engage in educational activities during the summer can lose up to two months’ worth of reading comprehension skills. Investing in a reading comprehension program helps to prevent this decline by keeping children actively engaged in reading and providing them with targeted strategies to improve their comprehension abilities.

Reading comprehension programs offer children exposure to a wide range of vocabulary and language structures. Through reading, children encounter new words, phrases, and sentence structures that expand their linguistic repertoire. By investing in a program that focuses on comprehension, parents ensure that their children are continually exposed to age-appropriate and challenging texts that foster the development of vocabulary and language skills. A strong vocabulary and language base not only help in understanding texts but also enhance communication skills, critical thinking abilities, and overall academic performance.

Reading comprehension programs go beyond surface-level understanding and encourage children to think critically and analyze texts. These programs often incorporate various comprehension strategies, such as predicting, summarizing, questioning, and making inferences, which help children develop higher-order thinking skills. Investing in a program that emphasizes critical thinking allows children to engage deeply with texts, understand complex ideas, and make connections between different pieces of information. These skills are essential not only for academic success but also for navigating real-world situations and becoming independent learners.

Summer reading comprehension programs can be designed to incorporate fun and engaging activities, making reading an enjoyable experience for children. By investing in a program that uses age-appropriate and interesting texts, parents can help foster a love for reading in their children. When children find pleasure in reading, they are more likely to continue reading independently, which, in turn, strengthens their reading comprehension skills. A positive attitude towards reading opens doors to a world of knowledge, imagination, and personal growth.

Investing in a summer reading comprehension program is a wise decision that can yield numerous benefits for children. Such programs prevent the summer slide, build vocabulary and language skills, strengthen critical thinking abilities, and foster a lifelong love for reading. By prioritizing reading comprehension, parents equip their children with essential tools for academic success and personal development. So, this summer, let’s make the investment in a reading comprehension program and empower our children to become confident readers and lifelong learners.
