By learning to identify the existence of common reading problems, parents can help young children receive the help they need to become better readers.
When you skim, you read quickly without really paying attention to what you’re reading. This can make it difficult to remember what you read, and to understand it fully.
When you scan, you look for specific information. This can be helpful if you’re looking for a specific fact, but it can make it difficult to understand the overall meaning of what you’re reading.
Fixation occurs when your eyes get stuck on a particular word or phrase. This can make it difficult to move on to the next word or phrase, and to understand what you’re reading.
Regression occurs when you go back and reread something you’ve already read. This can disrupt your understanding of the text, and make it difficult to move forward.
