Tips for Increasing Rapid Naming Ability in Struggling Readers

  1. Play “Search and Say” with the classroom word wall and a flashlight.
  2. Have the student complete timed, repeated readings of a passage in order to build automaticity.
  3. Play games that require quick word retrieval, such as Pictionary, Scattergories, or charades.

Why is ran so important?

RAN is a stronger predictor of reading fluency and phonological awareness is a stronger predictor of reading accuracy (e.g., Savage and Frederickson, 2005; Georgiou et al., 2008a; Poulsen et al., 2015).

How is rapid naming related to dyslexia?
