A child's comprehension can vary widely from one child to another. One effective tool that can help improve a child's comprehension skills is decodable texts. Decodables are books designed to help children learn and practice phonics. 

Jen Jones, a highly qualified K-12 Reading Specialist and ELA Staff Developer, has shared that although she was not aware of the term “science of reading” early in her career, she has always been passionate about teaching phonics to her students. As a mother and a teacher, Jones has experienced “mom guilt” due to the challenges she faced with her child, who has dyslexia. Her experience with dyslexia has fueled her advocacy for evidence-based reading instruction, including phonics, phonemic awareness, and other foundational skills. Jen is now recognized as a strong advocate of the science of reading. She is committed to supporting educators and parents in promoting positive outcomes for all students, including those with dyslexia.
