Problem with reading?

Recommended Posts

Have you tried using a different color laminate sheet or folding a sheet of colored paper and using that to follow each line? Is it easier to read online? This sometimes works, sometimes it doesn't. Reading difficulty is more common in ADHD than people think. Sometimes it is not the actual reading as it seems in your case, but the comprehension of what one reads. Break your reading assignments down into paragraphs if you need to do so. Are you able to decode the text if you are able to keep your eyes focused? I have taught students with ADHD, but I'm not sure if any of this will help or not. Take care!
