Why children need Comprehension Booster
Over 20% of children have poor reading comprehension. Research shows that most of these children lack the practice to acquire effective reading skills. They have difficulties in relating text content to background knowledge and experience. They are unable to frame questions that will help them extract important information. They often have poor working memory.
Overcoming poor reading comprehension requires plenty of practice at reading different types of texts in an interactive learning environment that focuses on developing key strategies. In the face of competition from TV and computer games, few children get this essential practice.
