Welcome to LD Resource.
Create a special place for your child to read. They may like to read alone or with you by their side. Listen to your child read or read to them everyday. Help your child select books at your local library or buy them books as a gift.
Have your child read the back and front cover, and first page of the book. If there are more than five words that he cannot pronounce or understand in context, the book may be too challenging. Be supportive about finding a more perfect fit.
When your child has sounded out an unfamiliar word, have him or her re-read that sentence. Often kids are so busy figuring out a word they lose the meaning of what they've just read.
Use new words your child has learned in lively flash card or computer drills. Sometimes these help kids automatically recognize and read words, especially those that are used frequently.
