Reading comprehension even comes into play when reading a text message on a smart phone or reading a Facebook post, even when people try to Buy followers on instagram.

Listening Comprehension is the ability to gain meaning from what you listen to, whether it is a direction, a lecture, or an audio book and then be able to act on it in. This is active listening.

Reading Comprehension Strategies Really Work!

“My son has really improved his reading, writing, and study skills. I was skeptical at first to even try the program because we’ve tried so many before this, but I just couldn’t give up on my son.  When we started Bonnie Terry’s Reading & Writing Program comprehension and writing was so difficult for him. Then we watched the video lessons and did the daily 20 minutes of work. It really made a difference.

He is a freshman in high school now, and finally reading & writing quite well. Bonnie, I want to thank you again for everything you have done to help us. I recommend your reading help system to all my friends. This is the best dyslexia program we’ve used…and we’ve tried a lot of different programs. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
