Student B came to DH READ with struggles in both comprehension and mathematics. Our evaluation revealed that Student B’s issues with mathematics were stemming from his gaps in comprehension. At the time of his evaluation, Student B demonstrated severe struggles with creating dynamic imagery during passage reading, despite being a fluent reader at his grade level.
Our instructional focus initially was to bring his phonemic awareness to mastery, address the gaps he displayed in basic mathematical concepts, and to foster comprehension through imagery and expression exercises. After 45 hours of our one-on-one instruction, Student B’s comprehension of nonfiction, grade level passages had improved by 20%, bringing him to near mastery.
