Aprender sobre el desarrollo de lectura del niño

Aprender a leer es difícil y no sucede naturalmente. Requiere instrucción explícita y sistemática, lo cual es especialmente importante para los lectores con dificultades. Aprender a leer implica muchas habilidades diferentes que deben enseñarse a su hijo. La instrucción en conciencia fonológica, fonética, fluidez, vocabulario y comprensión ayudará a su hijo a aprender a leer.

Helping your child stretch apart and connect sounds to sound out words supports early reading success.
