Parenting a Struggling Readerby Susan L Hall
Synopses & Reviews
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 nations children (approximately 17 percent) have trouble learning to read. While headlines warn about the nations 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 childs reading disability, Hall and Moats offer a detailed, realistic program for getting parents actively involved in their childrens 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.
