How can I help a struggling early reader at HOME?

Parents and caregivers, if you are reading this message you have reached desperation when it comes to supporting your Struggling Reader. It will be okay, I promise!

I am a special educator, trained in proven reading interventions, and I have worked with a number of Struggling Readers and families. Parents ask me all the time - How can I help my Struggling Reader at HOME?

Struggling Readers are sometimes referred to as "reluctant readers" because most of the time, they are one in the same. Enjoying reading takes practice but it also requires a very gradual increase in difficulty. If a student is forced to read too high above their competency level, it can be incredibly discouraging. Don't push too hard, let the student push themselves.
