Student C came to DH READ with severe struggles with Mathematics and Comprehension. At the time of her evaluation, Student C indicated significant struggles with basic math concepts, particularly in the areas of fractions and computation, starting at the addition and carrying level. While Student C was within the low-normal range in regards to fluency, she displayed trouble with reading with prosody and imagery of a read passage, which hindered her comprehension.
Based on this, our instructor’s first focus was toward building foundational skills in mathematics, and working imagery and prosody exercises within passage reading. After 80 hours of our one-on-one instruction, Student C displayed a drastic improvement in mental arithmetic; demonstrating mastery in addition and carrying, and a clear concept of mathematical concepts. During that time frame, instructors also helped Student’s C’s comprehension climb to a much more proficient level, indicating a much more proficient level of imagery and expression.
