Kids learn to read at different paces, and it’s normal for them to struggle at some point. But if learning to read becomes an ongoing struggle that leaves a child falling behind their peers, it’s possible that they have a learning disorder known as dyslexia.

Learning to read requires several different parts of the brain to work together. For some kids, learning to read comes easily, no matter the method. But others need a specific kind of teaching called “systematic phonics-based instruction.”

Identifying kids with reading problems early is important so they can get the support they need to succeed in school. To learn more or to schedule an evaluation, please reach out to us today.

The Need for Effective Reading Instruction

Reading is the most important skill children need to gain in the first few years of school. But how it’s taught can have a big impact on how well they succeed. Systematic phonics-based instruction helps kids learn to recognize printed letters and match them to specific sounds.
