What does the evidence say about working on main idea in speech therapy?

Research has found that teaching students how to summarize and find the main idea was effective in improving the understanding of text. When students were taught to read text, choose what is most important, and then express this in a shortened form, comprehension improved. (Solis et al., 2011).
