Watch the session below. 

*Please see the Transcripts resource folder located in Module 0 for a text copy of the transcript from this video. 


  • Reading difficulties look very different among different children
  • Variations can be explained along two dimensions based on the Simple View of Reading (word-level reading skills and language comprehension)
  • More detailed assessment of these dimensions can target skills to inform intervention
  • Poor reading comprehension can result from many possible factors and assessment can identify those factors

Reflect & Connect

What are the two major skill dimensions that affect reading comprehension and how do they affect different patterns of reading difficulties?
