Does PLD Have a Comprehension Program (or Resources) for the Primary School Years?

The Simple View of Reading (below) outlines Word Recognition and Language Comprehension being vital contributors to Reading Comprehension.

Word Recognisiton

PLD provides a 30 minutes a day Structured Synthetic Phonics Program for Foundation to Year 6. Without being able to decode/read words, comprehension is impossible, or compromised. So the Structured Synthetic Phonics Program is a major contributor to your student's comprehension skills.

Language Comprehension

For comprehension, teachers have the English Curriculum, and within the literacy block comprehension tasks, skills and strategies will be incorporated.
You may wish to consider PLD's Oral Language Programs, which have a positive impact on comprehension. These programs target oral language over the whole year.
