THE POWER OF READING BOOKS
What is Dyslexia???
"Students identified as having dyslexia typically experience primary difficulties in phonological awareness, including phonemic awareness and manipulation, single-word reading, reading fluency, and spelling. Consequences may include difficulties in reading comprehension and/or written expression. These difficulties in phonological awareness are unexpected for the student’s age and educational level and are not primarily the result of language difference factors."
(The Dyslexia Handbook, Texas Education Agency, July 2014)
How can I help my child at home?
1. Read to your child frequently!
2. Read with your child. Take turns reading paragraphs, pages, or chapters.
3. Before reading a new story, chapter or book discuss what it might be about. If reading a chapter
book discuss what's happened previously. Predict what might happen next.
4. During reading you might pause to ask your child about the meaning of particular words.
5. After reading ask your child to tell you what happened or what the story was about. You might ask
them to describe their favorite part and tell why?
Reading is an interactive process. To gain meaning from the written page, one must think about what has been presented, process the information and predict what will happen next or use the information to do something.
