The first tip may help a visual learner with comprehension.  The second is just a simple reminder about decoding words:

  • To improve comprehension in visual learners, have your student make some “mind movies”. Help your student do this by reading aloud and describing the pictures you’re seeing in your own imagination. Now ask them to describe what is in their “mind movie.”
  • When a student struggles on a word, REWRITE the word on another paper or dry erase board to help them sound it out.  Remember, please don’t tell them the word right away!
