Reading

Reading difficulties can be overcome with appropriate individualized intervention. With her expertise, Dr. Mazza understands reading challenges and develops a course of action to overcome them.

Reading issues can be complicated and involve numerous factors such as:

  • Reading Comprehension
  • Decoding
  • Phonics
  • Spelling
  • Vocabulary Building
  • Task Focusing on Reading
  • Critical Reading – developing a deeper understanding of the text
  • Inferencing – “reading between the lines”
  • Figurative Language – similes, metaphors, personification, hyperbole, etc.
  • Dyslexia

As a reading specialist, Dr. Mazza develops individualized lessons targeting the specific reading challenge(s). Each lesson is created to include the unique interests of every student. For example, a pupil interested in elephants will have reading materials on that topic, both fiction and non-fiction.
