Find Ways to Help a Child With Reading Problems


I recently made a post encouraging parents to get help for a child struggling with reading.
I think parents will find Target The Problem! from Reading Rockets a helpful starting point. I've addressed the five areas of reading and included ways parents can help here.

The five areas of reading are phonological and phonemic awareness, word decoding and phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension.

Here are links to posts from my blog you may find helpful grouped by reading area.
