Students need help visualizing letter patterns in words if they:
- Can’t remember words from one day to the next.
- Must sound out the same word each time they try to read it.
Students need help understanding concepts (comprehension) if they:
- Have to reread material several times and often remember only a few details rather than the “whole”
- Have trouble expressing their thoughts in an organized manner (orally or in writing) or
- Have trouble comprehending oral language and are often labeled poor listeners.
Students need help processing phonemes or speech sounds if they:
- Add, omit, and switch sounds while reading and spelling (read or spell “gril” for “girl,” or “subtute” for “substitute”)
- Memorize words and are not able to effectively read a non-memorized word
- See the first letter of a word and say another word with similar letter composition (“mike” instead of “milk,” or “apples” instead of “applause”)
- Rely heavily on pictures to read a story (young readers)
- Try to attack a word as a whole instead of seeing its individual parts (e.g., can’t see the familiar suffix “tion” in the word “station”)
- Don’t know the rules of written language or how to apply them
- Avoid reading, especially aloud.
