Tips to Help Build Children’s Reading Skills

 

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – June 10 is National Children’s Day and one-on-one brain training company LearningRx (www.LearningRx.com) is sharing tips to help parents build their child’s reading skills.

 

  1. Choose books on topics they love. Does your son love trucks? Does your daughter love owls? Ask the librarian to recommend books on those topics.

 

  1. Strengthen their core cognitive skills. Research shows that most reading struggles are due to weak cognitive skills. In children and teens with dyslexia, those skills are often phonemic awareness and auditory processing. Consider having your child’s cognitive skills assessed and then trained.

  1. Reward them for milestones. When a child reads his first book on his own or finishes an entire series, celebrate in grand fashion.

 

  1. Make sure they’re reading at the right level. Librarians are trained to help you find books to match your child’s reading skill level, so let them help. If you choose a book that’s too easy, your child may get bored; too hard and they may give up. Here’s a piece on choosing age-appropriate books for your child: www.learningrxblog.com/2016/10/27/choosing-age-appropriate-books-for-your-kids/

 

  1. Take them to the library. In addition to offering a great selection of books, many libraries have storytime, reading-related fundraisers and “meet the author” events.
