I see your point, but I think the causality was the other way around for him - because he'd never been interested in reading, he'd never increased his attention span. Barring illness, I'd say that reading is a bit like exercise, i.e. the more you do, the better you get at it. In my case, I started out with "Dick and Jane go to the beach", and worked up to full length novels from there.

In that case, I suspect if he'd started practising earlier, then he might be an avid reader now, but since he's now an adult, it would be rather difficult to find fiction at the correct reading level and of a suitable length for him. Which means he's a bit stuck, unless he can find himself a collection of (very) short stories to start with.
