This study examined how the explicit instruction of prediction and inference making skills affects overall reading comprehension. The participant was one third-grade student who was diagnosed with dyslexia. She required skills to overcome the decoding and word recognition challenges that prevented her from comprehending texts. Over the course of four weeks, the participant attended 55-minute sessions in which areas of reading comprehension, especially inference making, were assessed. She also received extensive modeling and guided practice in various comprehension strategies. Results for the study show that explicit instruction of prediction and inference making increases overall reading comprehension.
