    I have just assessed 17 year old, scored very low (below 69) reading comprehension scores in ART2, is this evidence for 50% ET? Speed was average, but she understood nothing.
    Thanks in advance

    No, reading comprehension is not a speed of processing task. For 50% extra time you need <69 in two separate areas of speed of processing, so for example: Speed of Reading and Rapid Naming.

    A reading score that low might be worth considering an oral language modifier. It is an access arrangement of last resort, but if you can evidence the need and show normal classroom practice it might be the best support.
