It's every parents worst nightmare to watch their child struggle with the ever important task of learning to read. For some it comes easy, but for others it can be a struggle. Research has shown that their is a brief window in which children are in their prime for learning to read. If this window is not taken advantage of then it is likely that the remainder of the road is going to be a bumpy one. The earlier a child learns to read, the better. As kids get older it becomes harder and harder for them to pick up on things as quickly as they did when they were young. Therefore, begin reading to your children as early as possible. However, there are resources out there to help parents if their children are struggling catching the reading bug. Here is a good website that gives links to several areas that will help you and your little one get aboard.
For any other help or support feel free to contact us at the Cass County Reading Railroad as we are always willing to help out with such struggles.
