Abstract

This paper investigates the needs of students with late emerging reading difficulties focusing on the motivation requirements of these students. It is argued that educators need to enhance the readers' sense of self-worth and competence by providing materials and a learning environment that is challenging yet manageable. Because students with reading difficulties experience failure over a considerable period of time and have formed negative reading self-concepts, lower expectations, and a decreased incentive to try, this paper outlines suggestions on how teachers can better understand and address these problems, based on the authors' research using tutoring programs for students with reading and comprehension difficulties.
