The word 'reading' is actually from an Anglo-Saxon word 'raedan'. Translated, this
actually means 'to advise oneself'. Reading is a skill which allows us to learn
independently and rely on one self to gain the knowledge we may/may not wish to
gather.

The Reading Processby: Libby Doherty
 
Introduction
'I learned to read in prison - there was nothing else to do!''I hate reading - it's boring!''Reading does my eyes in and my head. I can't remember what Iread so what's the point?''Sometimes I pick up the paper and wish I could read what it says.'
These are just some of the things people say to me with regards reading - you mayidentify with some, all or none of them. But whether we like it or not, reading is animportant and valuable tool to have in the world we live in today.The word 'reading' is actually from an Anglo-Saxon word 'raedan'. Translated, thisactually means 'to advise oneself'. Reading is a skill which allows us to learnindependently and rely on one self to gain the knowledge we may/may not wish togather.Sure, I have had clients say that they've managed to 'get by', so what does it matterif they can read or not? And for some people that's a reasonable attitude to take.But I believe that for many dyslexic people simply 'getting by' is not enough. Thefar reaching, three dimensional, lateral thought of a dyslexic individual should notbe underestimated. Whilst reading is, initially, an uncomfortable process for manydyslexic individuals - it doesn't have to be. So, I hope you enjoy at least some of the knowledge in this pack and 'advise oneself' accordingly!'

The Reading Process
Reading is a directional process: from Left to right.
Did you know....?
It only takes 2 muscles in your eyes to look up and down. To look fromleft to right, on the other hand, takes all 11 muscles and is much morestrenuous.Try it yourself but remember to keep your head still! By doing thisseveral times a day, you can actually strengthen your eye muscles,which may make reading easier in the long run!
Reading Speeds
 Believe it or not, adjusting the speed of your reading can make a difference andhelp you become a better reader. Reading can be seen as a bit like riding a bike.The SLOW reader does not gain enough momentum inreading to progress. In other words, too much time istaken on figuring out each individual word so its hard toremember or take in what you are reading!The FAST reader tends to race ahead and read so quickly,they have no idea what's happened or what's going on.They may even miss whole words or lines out and becausethey are going so fast, may not realise any mistakes theymay have made whilst reading.So, the best thing is to be a STEADY reader!The steady reader reads fluently, can read ahead and takein what's going on. We can all learn to read like this.However what is important to realise is that we need to beflexible when we are reading. And this really depends onWHAT we are reading.
Recap
People tend to read at different speeds depending on what they are reading.Whilst it is best to aim for being a steady reader, we need to remember to beflexible when we are reading.
If you are a SLOW reader...Wobbling and about to fall off...If you are a FAST reader...'Racing...can't see whereyou're going...The STEADY reader...'Smoothly, moving along nicely...
