This week, I have invited Lois Letchford, a returning guest here in Dyslexia Explored, to talk about her recently published research paper through the International Literacy Association titled “Moving beyond Decoding: Teaching Pronoun Resolution to Develop Reading Comprehension”.
In her paper, Lois Letchford and her co-author, Timothy Rasinski, identified that less proficient readers like people with dyslexia often are not as proficient in resolving pronouns. It is another comprehension task that teachers often dismiss as the student being lazy or dumb.
Lois shared with us how pronouns such as; he, she, they, it, etc., confuse people with dyslexia. They often find it difficult to remember which noun was the pronoun replacing. She also offered strategies on how we, as parents and teachers, can help our students overcome this challenge. Listen to her story now.
