3 Reasons why reading and learning is difficult for some children
Let’s face it. Reading well is one of the first academic milestones. In fact 1 in 6 children who are not reading proficiently by the third grade will not graduate from high school on time.
No parent wants to see his child struggle and fail. But frankly many children are facing an uphill battle by the time they reach kindergarten.
Why is this happening?
Of the top reasons why children struggle to read, at least three are related to a child’s speech and language skills. They include poor phonemic awareness, which is knowing the sounds that letters make; difficulty sounding out written words; and limited vocabulary.
These skills are associated with speech and language development.
Even with all of the information available about language development, many children, especially lower income children, do not have supportive language skills by the time they are three years old.
Don’t let this happen to your child. Your family deserves a better future.
