How Do you Know what to Teach Kids that are Struggling with Reading?

I get asked this question all of the time.  Well, even though each child's reading difficulties may come in many different forms and in different areas, I am able to look at how they succeed with the 5 pillars of reading.  If there is an area that they are specifically struggling with, then I provide instruction in that specific area.  I love being able to help all kids who struggle with reading and make it easier for them.  Most kids who I have worked with has had a strong desire to get better.  This makes instructing them extremely easy.


Here are more details about each of these pillars.  Does your child struggle in any of these?

  1. That’s a great infographic! (I love infographics!) I am blessed to have a very bright boy, who is now 13, and who tests at 12th grade in reading and comprehension. I think it’s his innate ability, but I did play some of those games with sounds when he was little, and I never spoke to him in too much baby talk; consequently he has quite an extensive vocabulary for his age. I’ve always believed that reading well is the foundation for all other learning.
