Guide to Reading Difficulties

Boy reading marvel comicsReading difficulties are very common in a regular classroom. Children have different styles of learning, and many children struggle to read. However, these difficulties usually settle within a week or month.

Children who continue to have difficulties with reading, are sometimes diagnosed to have dyslexia. A Multi Sensory approach to teaching alphabets and the use of phonics helps children read more easily. Building up pre-reading skills including visual skills, picture identification and matching, can help these children pick up reading soon. Some children may require special help from a special educator, occupational therapist or psychologist for their difficulties in learning to read. Here are a collection of resources to help children with reading difficulties.
