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
- 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.
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.
