@dyslexiaumich: What is reading fluency, and how does it affect dyslexic individuals?Best results to improve fluency are through consistent repetition, drill, and practice. It is not difficult to target fluency everyday for short periods of time (i.e., minutes). Repeated oral reading significantly improves word recognition and fluency (i.e., speed and accuracy). Remember to practice at a level that the student is already able to decode easily. The student should feel confident and comfortable with the text selected. A good way to determine the level of material is to be able to read all of the words on a given page with minimal errors (e.g., 1-2). A good way to help motivate your student is to use material that is of interest to the student. A good way to measure progress is to use a graph and have him chart his progress so he is able to visually see improvement. Providing feedback will not only build a student’s skill level, but also his self-confidence.
