One thing that I use in my remediation class is I have them try some short breathing excercises before reading. Then I play a mixture of music on YouTube that is 60 beats per minute only. I can't remember what study it is but that kind of music at that speed is perfect for concentration.

Our students receive breakfast in the classroom (homeroom) every morning. While they eat their breakfast, I read to them. They follow along using their own copies. Most times they don't like to read because they are not fluent. Sounding out the words constantly makes comprehension choppy and they lose interest fast. Hearing me read difficult words makes them connect the sound to the spelling. Many kids have told me, this is helpful and makes it fun. I teach 7th grade. I've done this for a few years and I get through about 3-4 books a year.
Giving students lots of choice in their reading selection can create a sense of ownership and help to build intrinsic motivation.
