Poor comprehenders are a significant subgroup of poor readers who have difficulty with reading comprehension despite adequate word reading accuracy and fluency. Following identification and profiling of a group of poor comprehenders, two interventions were designed and evaluated: the first a novel higher-level language strategy-based intervention, and the second a novel vocabulary intervention. Both intervention studies provided promising preliminary results and direction for future research to inform the theoretical underpinnings of this population.
