Struggling Readers: A Program for Parents

I remember when my son was younger. While looking at the cereal box during breakfast, he put his head in his hands and sighed, “I wish I could read what this says!” He wanted so badly to read, but he could not seem to remember his letters and sounds from day to day.

About twenty percent of our children will have some kind of struggle with learning to read. As the parent of a dyslexic child, I understand the need to have access to information on how to help your child. I am so excited to welcome Tracey Ely, the director of Tutor Eau Claire, to the library. She will be joining us for a free and informative evening on how to help the struggling reader in your life experience success with reading and writing. Parents and all adults working with children shouldn’t miss this hands-on workshop full of literacy tips and activities!

Struggling Readers: A Program for Parents

Amazon Says: The first completely comprehensive, practical guide for recognizing, diagnosing, and overcoming any childhood reading difficulty. According to the National Institute of Health, ten million of our nation’s children (approximately 17 percent) have trouble learning to read. While headlines warn about the nation’s reading crisis, Susan Hall (whose son was diagnosed with dyslexia) and Louisa Moats have become crusaders for action. The result of their years of research and personal experience, Parenting a Struggling Reader provides a revolutionary road map for any parent facing this challenging problem. Acknowledging that parents often lose valuable years by waiting for their school systems to test for a child’s reading disability, Hall and Moats offer a detailed, realistic program for getting parents actively involved in their children’s reading lives. With a four-step plan for identifying and resolving deficiencies, as well as advice for those whose kids received weak instruction during the crucial early years, this is a landmark publication that promises unprecedented hope for the next generation of Information Age citizens. less...
