A Roadmap for Identifying Reading Problems
Reading is one of those fundamental skills that are hard to live without. We need it to read road signs, to review paperwork, pay bills, etc. That’s why when a child experiences reading difficulties, getting them back on track has to be a top priority. If a child can’t read, then it will be nearly impossible for them to succeed in other subjects, such as science or social studies.
What do you do when a child is experiencing reading difficulties? The first thing we have to do is to find what is causing their difficulties. We need to find out if they are having a problem with decoding or word comprehension. Once we do this, we will be able to provide further supports and resources. Below, I have posted a roadmap for identifying reading difficulties.
