Reading, listening, understanding offers activities which have been specifically designed to develop and consolidate abilities and strategies which support clear access to the meaning of a text.
The book is divided into three parts, focusing respectively on:
• activating attention to relevant information;
• searching for and intentionally selecting information which can be used to carry out inference processes, according to the reading objectives;
• understanding implicit elements in the text.

The various worksheets are structured in such a way that they can be used in different settings and contexts (individually, in small groups and in class) and they can be used for both reading and listening activities.
 The activities are designed for children in years three, four and five of primary school who have difficulties in understanding written and spoken texts.
