~Read with your student asking questions along the way. (i.e...Who are the characters, What is happening within the text?)
~Review any unfamiliar vocabulary words within the text. 
~Allow students to draw a visual or make notes as they read to help them remember what has been read. 
~Allow students to complete learning in small increments. (i.e. single paragraph at a time, one story problem at a time, etc…)
~Allow extra time for tasks being asked.
~Eliminate any distractions (i.e. outside noise, technology, etc…) to help your student focus on the task.
~Encourage the student to verbalize as they work (i.e repeat directions, talk through the problem as it is solved, etc…)
~Allow the student to use a highlighter or colored pencils to make notes or emphasize important information within the text.
