Most common types of reading difficulties:

  • They may find it difficult to memorize letters and sounds – an early sign of trouble with reading
  • They work hard to sound out a word, but then cannot remember it
  • They be unable to sound out words, unsure of letter sounds or sound spellings
  • They may struggle to sound out words, but they don’t comprehend what they are reading
  • They may find it impossible to memorize sight words
  • They may feel reading is so tedious that they have given up

Characteristics of struggling readers:

  • They are very visual and tactile
  • They learn primarily through images and body movement
  • They think in pictures, not words and symbols
  • They learn and remember visuals but don’t memorize and retain facts
  • They learn by doing and seeing images and patterns – not by listening to instruction
  • They learn concepts all at once – not in step by step format

Strategies that help struggling readers:

  • Tie everything to an image
  • Use tactile activities and body movement to anchor learning
  • Use story to explain things you would normally ask them to memorize
  • Teach whole words first before breaking them down into individual sounds
  • Teach them to pay attention to the sounds they hear rather than asking them to memorize the spelling of words using letter names
  • Teach phonics concepts in patterns -  not phonics rules to memorize and apply

The good news? We have done all this for you. Every resource on this site has been designed with these strategies embedded in them.
