He is unable to answer questions about it, or summarize the meaning. He lacks comprehension.
Most reading methods today utilize strategies such as looking at the illustrations to guess the meaning of the text, or using context clues. Often students are racing through the passage in the mistaken belief that reading at a rapid pace is important. As a result, they lack understanding of what they have actually read.
The brain is similar to a computer; it processes reading (text), and pictures (graphics), in different areas. When reading programs try to teach reading to the graphics part of the brain, the result is confusion and a lack of comprehension. That’s why we never use flash cards or pictures as whole word methods do.
Our method uses a thoroughly tested scientific approach, and the entire brain learns to read and comprehend efficiently. Our students typically develop excellent comprehension skills in only 30 to 69 hours.
