Today, two other colleagues and I were talking about what makes a struggling reader. My response was, "it depends on your definition of reading."
Here's the situation: a colleague's student (we're taking a literacy assessment class and tutoring elementary students) is struggling with oral fluency. Even though he is having issues reading aloud, he has good comprehension. Colleague #2 says that this student is a struggling reader because he struggles with one aspect of reading.
What do you think? Should he be labeled a struggling reader?
