We, as parents, want the best for our children? Right?
We want them to be ready for school and for life’s challenges. We want them to soar.
But how do we do that?
We are living these crazy frenetic lives today…
We work 40+ hours (plus travel time)…
(Sometimes as a single parent )
Then there’s shopping, cooking, cleaning, laundry, dinner time, bed time …
And somewhere in the middle of all the chaos, we are our child’s first teacher.
We teach them shapes, colors, letters and sounds…. Maybe some children can even say printed words out loud.
Is that it? Now they are ready for school?
But what about that nagging doubt… have you done enough?
Will your child’s reading skills sustain him her or them through middle school, high school and college?
As a college professor, I’ve seen the face of reading failure on many of my students’ faces as they try to extrapolate meaning from textbooks and apply it in the real world.
1 in 5 college students today has to take a remedial reading class in their freshman year.
Not your child, right?
But how do you know…
How do any of us know ?
Well, in our 21 st century life we have so many tools to help us…
We have research on neuroscience to help us understand how a child’s brain develops.
We have research from cognitive psychology to help us to know how our child thinks and reads …
But how much of that research has reached your home?
