Students will struggle with reading, and it is harder on them when they have a reading disability. Providing support to these students can be critical in developing their reading comprehension and fluency skills. Second Chance Reading (SCR) is a great method of helping students receive the supports needed. Students with disabilities receive supports and accommodations. However, this does not mean that what they are receiving is what they need to be successful. A student reading faster but struggling to understand is just as bothersome as a student reading slower and struggling to understand. SCR helps students break down their reading skills into helping them develop reading comprehension and fluency skills. This paper focuses on using SCR to support a student’s success and reading development. The paper will conclude by identifying a problem, steps needed to fix the problem, and how to know the steps are being successful in helping a student develop reading comprehension and fluency skills through SCR.
