Here are seven common reasons why children got reading problems.

1. Make Many Mistakes when Reading Words.
Sometimes children read less because they make many mistakes when reading individual words. When they did not understand what they are reading they come back and re-read the words. It can take time and it can also affect their understanding of what they are reading.

2. Teacher Start new Reading Strategies.
Once children got to know the basics of reading. They start giving attention and focused on understanding what they are reading. Especially in the fourth and fifth-year teachers give children many strategies. Some children seem to read more slowly because they practice what they have learned.

3. Difficult to Stay Focused.
Problems with the approach can make children read more slowly. Often kids distracted by noise activity and different thoughts to keep their mental focus. This is also a major reason why they could not give proper attention.
