My 7 year old son has just been tested at school and the teacher has assessed him to be reading at a level 17 - and needs to be at a 22 at the end of grade 2. His actual reading scores a 19 but his comprehension is 16 so she is putting him at 17. She has indicated that he is one year behind in reading. There is only 2 months left of school this year. His comprehension is quite weak. We practice reading a story at home and then I ask questions about the story. When I tell him the story his comprehension is quite good but when he reads it and tries to comprehend it's like he didn't take any of it in at all. We are getting him assessed this summer by a pediatrician who specializes in educational assessments to rule out anything. He also struggles in writing as well. We have had a tutor for him up until last month when she wasn't available anymore and we can't find anyone else that fits the bill. We read everyday at home as does he - which he isn't overly enthused about. Are there any online suggestions for programs to do with hime? We do starfall, reading eggs. Looking for some sites that would help with comprehension and that are fun. Also, any clues as to why this is occurring would be great too. Not looking for a diagnosis just some words of wisdom. He is a boy and his dob is October - but I know we can only lean on that for so long.
