Recognize the Issue
Children may have difficulty with basic reading, writing, and math skills. To learn to read and write well, children need the blocks of knowing the sounds of letters and the blocks of knowing the meanings of words (vocabulary), word parts (grammatical markers) and groups of words (overall meaning or semantics). Children may have challenges with:
- Phonological awareness
- Phonological processing
- Phoneme manipulation
- Printing letters
- Sentence structure
- Rapid Automatic Naming
Understand the Possible Causes
- ADHD/Executive Functioning
- Visual Processing Disorders
- Auditory Processing Disorders
