Abstract

Developing the ability to read is a complex process involving a variety of skills including both basic language skills and language comprehension skills. Although a balanced reading program would include the development of basic language and comprehension skills comprehension has often been overlooked in early reading instruction. In this article we examine recent research findings on how comprehension skills develop in young children and discuss the implications of those findings for comprehension assessment and interventions.
