- Reading Fluency: ComprehendRx promotes speed and accuracy, equipping clients to devote less effort to decoding and more attention to comprehension.
- Vocabulary: ComprehendRx drills key high-frequency words and phrases for quick, accurate recognition.
- Sequential processing: ComprehendRx targets the critical ability to hold sequences of information in working memory while processing incoming new data.
- Working memory: ComprehendRx targets working memory for better retention as that information is being compared, analyzed, connected and organized.
- Reasoning: ComprehendRx targets reasoning, critical for analyzing, connecting, understanding and applying new information.
- Metacognitive strategies: ComprehendRx targets the ability to self-monitor success at understanding what’s being read, then make internal adjustments (in attention, reading speed, etc.) to self-correct and improve reading performance.
