|Title:||Reading Comprehension Difficulties Experienced by Students with Learning Disabilities||Contributor(s):||Graham, Lorraine (author); Bellert, A M (author)||Publication Date:||2005||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/491||Abstract:||Students with learning disabilities often experience poor comprehension due to their failure to read strategically and to spontaneously monitor their understanding while reading. This paper discusses in relation to current literature, the various problems with reading comprehension commonly experienced by students with learning disabilities. Specifically, these students may encounter problems in: (A) using background knowledge appropriately; (B) decoding and word recognition; (C) vocabulary knowledge; (D) fluency; (E) strategy use and metacognitive skills; and (F) differentiating between common text structures.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Australian Journal of Learning Disabilities, 10(2), p. 71-78||Publisher:||Routledge||Place of Publication:||Sydney, Australia||ISSN:||1324-8928||Field of Research (FOR):||130312 Special Education and Disability||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/19404150509546791||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 278
