What We Know About Reading and the Warning Signs

Many children who fall behind in school are missing key fundamental skills that others seem to have naturally. It is important for parents to follow their "gut" instincts when trying to determine if his/her child needs learning support. Therefore, identifying and seeking early intervention for a child is paramount.

A significant portion of the population, 17-20%, has a difficult time learning to read. These reading difficulties often lead to global learning problems as school work becomes more complex.

Once the cognitive processes are addressed individuals are then able to learn on their own with the confidence they may have never before experienced.
