Rogde, Hagen, Melby-Lervåg & Lervåg (2019): The effect of linguistic comprehension instruction on generalized language and reading comprehension skills: A systematic review
I: Campbell Systematic Reviews, Online first, Open Access
Well‐developed vocabulary and language comprehension skills are not only critical in themselves but also fundamental to the development of adequate reading comprehension abilities and achieving academic success. Children with poor language skills, children from low socioeconomic areas, and second‐language learners are at risk for subsequent reading comprehension problems. Reading comprehension difficulties are relatively common in school‐aged children, and intervention programs have been designed to support children's linguistic comprehension skills.
The primary objective of this review was to examine the extent to which linguistic comprehension instruction in educational settings is effective when measured by generalized outcomes of linguistic comprehension and reading comprehension.
