One of the most important aspects of literacy development is the ability to understand and decode text. Reading requires two elements: - decoding and comprehension. The integration of these two skills is essential to reading, both being equally important but not interchangeable. Reading is the foundation of all intellectual learning. CAMI Reader is a complete reading and language system for students from age 5 onwards.
