One of my readers asked me the following question:
“Do you have any tips or resources I can check out for my son? He is having a really tough time with reading comprehension. Any suggestions?”

Here is an issue that we constantly encounter at our Dyslexia Centre. Parents tell us that their children are not getting effective reading and spelling support in schools. This situation applies equally in elementary, middle and high schools.

While it is easy to think that normal speech develops no matter what, that is not true. Exposing children to high quality speech is the key. Research tells us that TV and radio won’t do and that it must be an interactive process made up of both spontaneous self-expression directed at someone and responding. In general your child will make certain errors of speech and of grammar and then naturally correct them over time.
However, there is also a specific role that you can play to guide your child through the process.
