"Thank you, Reading Assist, for giving me that confidence to know that I can do it and that I will succeed with a little extra effort."

How do you know if your child may be struggling with the mechanics of reading? Struggling readers often:

  • Speak later than most children
  • Exhibit pronunciation problems
  • Experience slow vocabulary growth or have difficulty finding the right word
  • Have difficulty rhyming words
  • Have trouble learning numbers, alphabet, days of the week, colors, or shapes
  • Have difficulty learning letters, sounds and the connections between them
  • Make reading and spelling errors including letter reversals (b/d), inversions (m/w), transpositions (felt/left), and substitutions (house/home)
  • Rely heavily on memorization when learning new skills
  • Skip words and do not stop to self-correct
