Early reading skills are essential for becoming a great student and lifelong learner. Children who read fluently are able to fin great adventures that unlock the imagination and enhance the creative mind. However, when your child has ADHD or Dyslexia, learning to read can be a struggle. Get your child off to the right start with Sound Reading’s Hop Skip and Jump reading software.
Reading is not learned all at once. It takes several baby steps to take the giant leap from understand words to understanding The Little Red Hen. It begins with understanding letters and sounds and then progressing to words, sentences and finally stories.
These first steps are auditory, not visual. Your child has to hear what the vowel “a” sounds like before they can recognize it on a page. If your child has auditory processing issues, these first steps will be difficult for them to take. And without these steps, the other stages of reading will be difficult for him to master.
Your Child Isn’t Alone
Don’t be worried if your son or daughter is showing the signs of auditory processing issues that can lead to difficulties with reading. Over 35% of all English speakers have some form of auditory issues, including ADHD and Dyslexia. That is why Sound Reading software is based on speech therapy methods to help develop auditory processing skills. Once these skills are mastered, the first steps to learning to read fluently and comprehend what is read can be learned.
