Children may face difficulty in reading because of Dyslexia, ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), APD (Auditory Processing Disorder), Visual Processing Issues, or other issues that should be diligently probed. However, the good news is that if the cause of reading problem is detected early, parents along with the child’s teacher can make efforts to help the kid.
Following are some suggestions on ways to recognize reading problems in your child so that you can start taking necessary measures to help him:
Reading takes time, practice & patience. So, it is important to respect each child’s individual pace of learning to read and consider his age when making the above-mentioned assessments. Before concluding anything, be sure to rule out whether your child is simply not yet ready to read or whether he requires some pre-reading activities for preparation.
The purpose of recognizing reading difficulties in a child is to be able to offer the right kind of assistance at the right time. Some steps in this direction are meeting with your child’s teacher or fixing an appointment with your child’s doctor, a reading specialist, school psychologist or speech-language pathologist, getting a referral for special education, and more.
