The 9 Main Causes of Reading Difficulty
Is your child guessing words? Skipping words? Reading a word fine on one page but not the next?
It can be so frustrating when a child shows these patterns… especially when you feel like you have tried everything. Well, there’s good news, and bad news.
Bad news: just doing more of the same stressful reading practice isn’t going to make a difference.
Good news: Struggling readers can learn to read (without tears or battles). You just have to pinpoint the underlying cause of difficulty so you can apply the right solution.
Discover why your child is struggling
Our Amazon bestseller covers the actual causes of reading difficulty (like whole word sight-reading, eye-tracking issues, weak working memory, and more).
