Why are poor readers slow and inaccurate?

Many poor readers are slow and/or inaccurate at identifying:
  • Letters, and sounds that letters make
  • Words, and the meaning of words
  • The meaning of sentences and paragraphs
Speed and accuracy are important and many readers have difficulty becoming fast and accurate. > More about Reading Skills  |  > More about Dyslexia Comprehension improves, and reading becomes much easier, when readers become fast and accurate at identifying letters, letter sounds, and words
  • Readers who are slow and/or inaccurate spend too much of their cognitive resources on identifying words
  • This does not leave enough cognitive capacity for the comprehension process
  • Our software does not use phonics based procedures.  Some children exposed to phonics become accurate at identifying words, but they are so slow comprehension is impaired
