I found this post to be very informative and helpful in identifying the top 10 reasons why students struggle with reading. I am currently an adult education specialist and find it extremely difficult in finding helpful material to assist tutors in working with students. Although this is targeted for middle school learners ( 3rd and 4th grade) I think the tools and and helpful hints in working with students who struggle with reading can apply to learners of all levels.

What happens before school is extremely important in recognizing the learning gap from my experience. Learners who may not grasp material as easily as others can get frustrated and overlooked by teachers in some cases. They may not attend school as ofter and begin to fall further behind. If this is a trend among low level readers, this can ultimately affect them in adulthood which adds in a lot of other confounding factors that may begin to affect their learning capacity.
