Is Your Child Struggling to Read?

Reading is a fundamental skill that all students must master in order to reach success. Since reading is needed in all subjects, identifying reading struggles early can make a real difference in your child's academic performance. Below are some signs that indicate your child is struggling with reading.

Difficulty Sounding out Words

For new readers, sounding out new words can be tricky. However, if your child isn't new to reading, this shouldn't be a huge struggle anymore. If they have issues sounding out words that are spelled phonetically or that they come across often, this may indicate that they have some reading issues that need to be addressed.

Reading Fluency Issues

Reading fluency refers to your child's ability to read a text out loud, fluidly, with the correct pauses, pronunciation, and inflections. If they read a text word by word or if their reading is choppy, they may need some help developing this skill.

Refusing to Read

Many students who struggle to read will often refuse to read out loud or will develop a negative attitude when the subject comes up. They may be embarrassed to ask for help or they may think they'll get in trouble if they admit they have reading troubles. Talk to your child about their reading struggles and come up with a plan that will help them improve where needed. This can help them develop their self-confidence and they may even develop a love for reading.
