Connect to Comprehension

What is Connect to Comprehension?

  • Scripted, explicit reading intervention program for dyslexic students and other struggling readers.

  • Connects all components of reading and ties them to written expression and oral language.

  • Based on Orton-Gillingham principles, with all components taught/ reviewed/ practiced on a daily basis.

  • Focuses on upper-level comprehension skills (cause-effect, compare-contrast, inferences, etc.)  These can be taught to even severely struggling readers.

  • 6 levels of program, aligned with 6 leveled sets of highly-engaging decodable readers.

  • Skill-based, so can be used effectively with any age, including adults.

  • Can be implemented in one-on-one tutoring, small intervention groups, or intervention classroom.

  • Multi-sensory, interactive lessons, including many game-like formats.

  • Teacher’s Guides outline each part of every lesson, with explicit language to use for teaching and reviewing.

  • Implementation Guide with pre- and post-test assessments for program placement, progress monitoring, and outcome measures.

  • Pack of fluency strips and sequencing strips included for additional interactive practice.

  • Narrative and informational text incorporated throughout levels.
