MANY CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS CAN READ WELL, BUT FIND ABSORBING INFORMATION FROM WHAT THEY READ VERY DIFFICULT
It is possible your child has difficulty understanding what they read, without you being aware.
Their ability to understand what is read can be assessed using reading tests which check for accuracy (how many words are correct), understanding and speed of reading.
One of the ways Fiona teaches your child to understand what they read is via the ‘Visualising and Verbalising’ program, which teaches the reader to form pictures in their mind as they read. For example, when your child reads about an elephant sitting on a mouse, he or she may ‘see’ a huge grey elephant slowly sitting on a tiny white mouse, and then the mouse squealing.
Visualising as they read is a skill they do unconsciously. For some children visualising needs to be taught so they can easily understand what they read.
