I just cannot get difficult child to read! No matter what techniques I try. He is very fluent but has some comprehension problems if he finds the book boring (he is a skimmer) which leads to lots of mistakes. No amount of encouragement seems to help. I just am at my wits end trying to help this child understand that reading is required and it must be done. He loves certain books and we often go to the bookstore and I allow him ample time to browse but required reading in school is an absolute nightmare. He rages, breaks pencils, and pouts like a 2 year old. This has been an ongoing problem since 1st grade. Any suggestions or advice ?
