However, what is unclear from the studies discussed so far is whether weak language skills precede poor reading comprehension or result from lower quality and possibly less frequent reading experiences. The Poor Comprehender Profile19 Early Indicators As reading comprehension difficulties tend to emerge around eight years of age, it is hard to disentangle the relationships between reading and language because by this point oral language and reading skills have been developing together and affecting each other for some time.

The poor comprehenders also performed more poorly on a working memory task; however, despite working memory being linked to comprehension monitoring, it could not fully explain the results of the error detection task. Together these findings suggest that comprehension monitoring contributes to reading comprehension ability in its own right (not just because it involves working memory). Oakhill and colleagues suggest that poor comprehenders are unable to build rich mental models of the text they are reading and this in turn affects their ability to monitor comprehension.

Following on from this, Nation, Snowling and Clarke (2007) investigated the idea that poor comprehenders have particular difficulties learning new words. g. ‘a corbealyon is a small, hairy, angry bird’) and then tested their understanding of the words by asking children to recall the definition of the word and produce the name of the object when given the definition. The following day children were asked to remember the words and then match them to the correct pictures. Poor comprehenders learned the new items as quickly as typical readers but found it much more ­difficult to provide definitions for the new items.
