Reading Support, or let us say "reading," is more than recognizing and saying the words on a page or screen. What we do when we read is complex; we apply knowledge of sounds, letters, grammar, content, disciplinary practices, and much more. College readers also consider who texts are written for, when the texts were written, and the purpose of specific texts.
Reading Support services can assist students from most subject areas--we encourage reading support in foreign language be directed to language tutors and/or instructors. The goal for reading support is to unpack reading practices essential to reading for understanding.
