Comprehension

Comprehension refers to the ability to understand the information being received.  Having good listening comprehension suggests the listener can attend to and understand the information from the speaker.  Good reading comprehension refers to the ability of the reader to understand what they have just read.  

At Building blocks Therapy Centre, we use a range of creative methods to support listening comprehension and/or reading comprehension.  We are able to work with the child's understanding by working with the preferred level of information carrying words needed to comprehend instructions and then slowly increasing the amount of information given in an instruction.  Other methods of developing the child's reading comprehension, is through the use of books and structure words.
