Comprehension Versus Decoding

The Eide Neurolearning Blog has a good post on the difference between poor readers who have problems decoding the text and poor readers who have problems comprehending the text.

In this very straightforward study, the authors point out the mistake of thinking that interventions should be the same for all readers in the poor reading group. Children with dyslexia and children with a more generalized language disorder have different learning needs, but they can’t be distinguished by comprehension alone.

Beyond the Poor Reading Group

    I was wondering if you could direct me towards some area of study or training in this field in the UK? I am a chiropractor, have studied mvmt and learning which included Sally Goddard’s type work and more but I would like to follow it all further. Can you give any advice??
