Reading is one of the most important academic skills for children to acquire within the first few years of school. Every child needs to be taught to read, but some kids pick up the skills more easily than others. However, many other kids struggle to know how to sound out words or understand what they see in print. This group includes those who have learning disorders, like dyslexia. They need a specific kind of instruction to learn to read effectively and we know a lot about the best kind of interventions. Though more and more schools are adopting these effective methods, there still are many schools that aren’t using them.

Because the way students are taught how to read can have a huge impact on both their academic success and their mental health, this month’s newsletter focuses on the importance of using evidence-based reading instruction. Whether you’re a parent or an educator, the resources below are here to help you support children struggling with literacy.

If you are concerned about your child’s development and would like to schedule an evaluation in New York or San Mateo, please reach out to us today.
