Reading Comprehension FAQs

1. What Is Reading Comprehension?

Edison-NJ-readingReading comprehension is different from literacy. While literacy is the ability to read a text, reading comprehension is the ability to process and understand the meaning of what is read. Improving your child’s reading comprehension skills at a young age is an important step that lets them progress from reading words to analyzing resources and drawing conclusions using critical thinking skills.

2. How Can Parents Improve Reading Comprehension Skills? 

There’s more than one way to teach reading comprehension, but a good strategy is to expose children to various texts and encourage them to incorporate reading and writing into their day-to-day routines. Talk to a professional at a school or learning center about your child’s reading level, then select appropriate books. Ask your child questions about what they’ve read to gauge their understanding, and have them re-read passages if necessary. You also can have your child read aloud, which will help them focus on every word of text.

3. Why Is Reading Comprehension Important?

Reading comprehension is a building block of university-level thinking. On a fundamental level, a child must learn to read to understand information and communicate with peers. After a child hones their reading comprehension skills, they can move on to more complex thinking like analysis.

Enrolling your child in a reading enrichment program is an excellent way to boost their literacy skills and prepare them for a successful academic career.
