This study examines the cause and effect relationship between attention and reading achievement. The study design relies on a correlational research process. Two sets of data were collected on the same group of students; the data collected was on student attention and reading achievement. The hypothesis is null the relationship between behavior management strategies and attention strategies for reading achievement, is supported by the study. There is no significant difference for all the areas tested; except for negative behavior which decreased significantly. The correlation test between negative and positive behavior and between reading error and reading time showed no significant difference either.
