Night Elf Posted February 6, 2011 Share Posted February 6, 2011 My ds14 reads very slowly. He says he has trouble reading because his eyes bounce off the page, he gets distracted and sometimes he rereads the same material more than once which he attributes to his mild OCD. We had his eyes checked and his vision is good. He comprehends the material fine, it just takes him a long time to actually read the material, regardless of where he's reading, such as in a book or on the internet. What would you do? He was unable to finish a few sections of his timed standardized test because he took so long in reading the passages. On a regular basis, he's not bothered by his slow reading because he does so very little of it, but he was upset that he couldn't finish the test sections. This has been going on for a few years I guess. It's never been a problem because he's never had large amounts of stuff to read. Now he's in high school level courses.
