Comprehension guides support children when comprehension breakdown is a significant contributor to their emotional and behavioral problems in the classroom. Behavior intervention programs are frequently limited in their success, because they do not adequately address student understanding of what is expected and what to expect. This is especially the case with students who have trouble discerning the nuances of routines and situations.
Comprehension guides provide detailed and visually supported guidelines to illustrate what is expected and why. They help students understand the nuances of classroom routines and they increase the precision of behavior intervention programs.
