I am a newbie to this site, and I am amazed at all the topics that are here. I am a mom to 2 boys that both have ld's. What I am needing help with is the Roe/Burns informal Reading Inventory results.
My 9 year old son who has PDD/ADHD and anxiety had his 3 year eval and I am concerned with his reading and verbal comprehension. The test is broken down into 3 parts from what I can tell. Word Recognition, Comprehension, and Reading Fluency.
In Isolation Independent level (>90% accuracy) 100% at 3rd grade
Instructional level (>80% accuracy) 80% at 4th grade
Frustration Level (<75% accuracy) 70% at 5th grade
In Context Independent level (>99% accuracy) 97% at 2nd grade
Instructional Level (>95% accuracy) 97% at 4th grade
94% at 5th grade
Frustration level (<90% accuracy) Not reached
From the scores it looks like he is reading at grade level and comprehending at almost grade level. His reading fluency is over 120wpm which is good. He may need a little more help with comprehension. Going over new words/vocabulary until he understands them.
