A study " Reading difficulties in grade six learners and challenges faced by teachers in teaching reading" which conducted by Linda Mwanamukubi (2013) aimed to discover the factors that contribute to causing reading difficulties among the learners of grade six and the challenges faced by teachers in teaching reading.

types of learning difficulties that face learners as a foreign language, among them are reading difficulties.

The present study is in keeping with the readability tests available online – SMOG, Fry, Flesch, and Gunning-Fog - and the interrelationship between reading theories and readability testing. These formulae have been juxtaposed with reading theories - reading as a psycholinguistic guessing game, top-down and bottom-up, and interactive models of reading, and schema theory, Krashen’s comprehensible input or i + 1 theory - to aid the researcher in giving substance and form to the study.
