Dr Martha Burns answers some of your questions here:
Question: Why do some students miss some words to read while reading?
Answer by Dr Burns: There can be several reasons. Sometimes students skip over words because their visual tracking isn't smooth and coordinated. Sometimes they just don't recognise the word and trying to figure it out seems too difficult, so they skip over it or misread it. Sometimes, if in a hurry, they just misread it because they don't take the time to figure it out.
