From my experience of working with adults with learning disabilities, I know that it quite common to encounter people who can read, but do not always have the right level of comprehension. I note that the White Paper refers to a reading check at the age of six. I would like to know a little more about that and to be assured that this means a test of comprehension as well as a reading test.
