The reading potential with which man is born can, and should be improved and developed in each phase of his/her life. Developmental reading is a purposeful life-long attitude to optimise your reading skills.Each new life phase requires the development of new and improved reading skills and strategies to interact efficiently on every new elevated level of mental development. The implication is that every new school grade or advanced level of study will have new reading challenges to improve the necessary reading skills to obtain the needed insight in and comprehension of the more difficult study material
