From the Smarty Education Corner: Strategies for Summer Reading for Children with Reading Disorders
By Pam Tan, M.Ed. of Tan Educational Consulting
Most children with reading disorders are reluctant to pick up a book and read. The goal for the summer months is to find your child looking at a book or reading/listening to a book when he/she hasn’t been told to go read.
Summer should be a relaxed time for children when they can read for pleasure without the pressure they experience in the classroom. It is a time to build their confidence, improve reading fluency and comprehension, and develop a love for reading.
