Intervention for Reading

Do You Need Reading Help for Your Student?

Struggling readers are under a lot of stress.  It is important to address the deficit skills as soon as possible and as early in a child’s academic career as possible.  Most children, however, are not identified and treated earlier than third grade.  The truth is that how that child was reading in first grade would have strongly predicted what kind of reading success the student would have as a third grader!

Difficulty learning how to read is often a shock for those eager to learn and for those who love and support them.  Bright, verbal people sometimes experience difficulty learning how to read fluently.  For those of us who never had trouble learning how to read, it is easy to forget how unnatural this process actually is for the human race.
