Reading: a big issue

Although many people take to books easily, reading is a very complicated task. There are many many reasons why someone would have trouble with reading. It could be an attentional issue, decoding, vocabulary, comprehension, fluency or all of the above.

One of the keys to combating a reading problem is to first really understand which piece of the puzzle to tackle first. NIFL (National Institute for Literacy) has valuable information on this subject.

For example, Strategies and Reading Profiles (ASRP). While there, you can learn about the components of reading or watch videos on how to give tests. Also, there are downloads available for free tests. Finally, you can match your test scores to reading profiles and get instructional strategies.

If this is not enough, then you can access other resources. Bon Apetit.
