I used various phonics primers (preschool) to help my son learn to read. Now he can read nonsense words at his current grade level but has very low comprehension. What techniques or reading programs could help him improve vocabulary and understanding of the material he reads and listens too?
I second the lindamood bell vizualizing and verbalizing books. We are doing a couple of them with my 9 yr old son and it's helpibg his comprehension so much!
Dylan can identify tons of objects - he cannot identify groups - he can identify some sight words but not much comprehension and can only spell cat and dog. He is 11. I am trying to read to him - but he isn't listening. Even when I over do the voice. I was reading a book he picked then after I was done - and the book was put away I asked what did we just do - he said "yes". I said did we read a book - he said "yes" - I said did you eat a frog - he said "yes" ... some days I am just not strong enough. Some days I just give him the iPad with the app that goes over words so he can see and hear words - when I am too stressed to work with him. I need more patience and better tools. And a nap - I need a nap! :)
Wow, @A MyAutismTeam Member LoveandLearning.com looks fantastic. We have to share these resources!!
Believe it or not, Your Baby can Read was a help to our son. Also Bob's books. I did a lot of flash cards with three word sentences and pictures too.
