What are some of the specific reasons why remedial readers (especially learning disabled students) struggle with comprehension?

  • Ineffective search behaviors

  • Inadequate decoding skills

  • Inability to connect causal relationships

  • Impaired working memory

  • Lack of motivation


How does motivation factor into comprehension? (especially learning disabled students) struggle with comprehension?

Remedial readers lack motivation because they can not connect to the text.

Engaged readers are described as students who are motivated, strategic, knowledgeable, and socially interactive.


  • “…students with LD require more instruction if they are to achieve mastery, particularly if the students are to be successful in transferring learned comprehension skills to new, untrained materials and retaining critical information” (Rabren, Darch, & Eaves, 1999).

  • All previously stated instructional methods go from explicit teacher modeling, think alouds, and explanations as to how and why strategies are being used

  • Flexibility in all models to accommodate the needs of the students
