Just came across this blog from Literacy News that I thought had some excellent advice for parents of young readers. As a parent, it's tricky sometimes to know what your role is when it comes to teaching a child to read. This blog offers some good, concrete tips for parents who want to help their children prepare for reading success.

What kinds of things do you do at home to help your child learn to read? How is your child being taught to read at school? At what age do you think a child should learn to read?

    Thanks for bringing up this issue. When it comes to reading it is always difficult to figure out what works best for your child.

    When I first taught my children to read, I used a method of phonics, but quickly realized this worked for my eldest but not my youngest. She didn't grasp reading. So after trial and error I began to realize she was a visual learner who needed both elements to learn to read. She only became successful in learning after the sound and visual were combined. And now she is reading at a higher grade level than her fellow students.

    I have seen a huge improvement, and suggest for anyone whose kid is struggling with reading to try using both sound and visual to help their kid overcome it too.
