Learning to read is considered a rite of passage for many. It is a skill we pick up in our early years and often take for granted as we grow older. Despite it becoming second nature to most of us, learning to read can be challenge for some children. It is Mother Nature that makes human beings unique. Mother Nature can also provide children with unique learning challenges as well.
Despite the best of intentions in our schools, some children need extra support in their efforts to learn to read. This is no way an indication of the child’s shortcomings or the inability of the teachers themselves. Simply put, sometimes children learn at their own pace and may need extra supports in place to succeed. The extra support should be embraced and not frowned upon. Which is why we aim to provide essential support to aid the process of learning to read.
The initial reaction from a child and some parents at the mention of tutoring can be that they have failed in some way. This is not the case. We all need help from time to time in a variety of areas. Not seeking the help needed to make the child a successful reader is the real failure. Keep an open mind when considering the next steps toward supporting your child’s success.
As parents, we have so many responsibilities relating to the care and well-being of our children. The sound tutoring program developed at The Reading Clinic is made to suit your individual child can provide the additional support that a child needs. If there is even a chance that your child might benefit from this extra support, it’s worth a conversation.
