worried parent 1 - besteducationpossible.blogspotFor parents of schoolchildren in the northern hemisphere, May and June can be nail-biting months. As the school year comes to an end, parents with struggling learners can be catapulted into worries about how their child will cope with the demands of the next year with new teachers, new peer groups, and harder material.

For children between the ages of 7 and 10 who are behind in their reading and spelling, this is an especially debilitating concern. Without a good reading foundation, these children cannot progress.

If you are in that boat, you may be considering summertime solutions to help prepare your dyslexic son or daughter for what’s ahead academically.

A recent study of the Easyread System found that in an average of 120 lessons, poor readers who were two years behind caught up to an age appropriate level. So starting Easyread in June could mean that by the end of September your child is no longer fighting their literacy battle.

Now if that’s not a worthy summer project, I don’t know what is.
