auditory and listening comprehension

I have a student with significant cognitive delays. Her auditory processing and listening comprehension are poor. She needs to understand text that is read orally or written. What are some things I can do?

I would start out this way

by reading short sentences that can be backed up with comprehension questions like…..

The black dog ran into the house.

Questions:

1. What color was the dog?
2. Where did the dog run?

From there I would go to longer passages (2-3 sentences) with more detailed questions. I would follow the same suit with material at her instructional reading level.

Visualizing

After you read the sentence, ask her to picture it in her mind.

"Close your eyes and try to see it. Did it go in the front door or the back door? Is it a big dog or a little dog?"

Read the sentence again.

If she can form the habit of visualizing, it will help her comprehend.
