Dyslexic, LD, ADHD, & Gifted Kids Improve Comprehension Skills By Game Playing

September 24th, 2009

Kids with dyslexia, LD, and ADHD are not the only ones that struggle with reading comprehension. Even gifted kids have been known to struggle with reading comprehension.

How many times have your kids re-read the same pages in their textbook, searching for the answers? Your kids may have even flung their book down or at you in frustration? That may be because no one actually ever taught them the skill of reading for meaning, and a result, reading assignments are hard for them.

Teaching the skills of reading for meaning, teaching reading comprehension skills, doesn’t have to be daunting. In fact, what if you could play a game as a family and in the playing your kids could actually learn how to read for meaning? That is what the kids in this family are doing. Watch the video of this family playing The Comprehension Zone. They are learning how to find the main idea of what they read. They can also play to find details of what they read or sequence what they read while they play.

Hope this has been helpful!

    Have you ever seen how this makes kids react after they come down from the drugs they put people on?

    • Playing the game helps kids to not only learn skills, but it also helps them to learn how to get along and interact with others, whether they are on meds or not. It also does carry over to other activities.
