Helping Your Child Learn to Read

Every parent wants his or her child to be a successful reader. Reading provides the foundation for a great education as well as serving as a lifelong skill that brings not only knowledge, but pleasure. Research shows that there are things that can be done at home to help children become successful as readers.

Teaching young children to recognize the letters of the alphabet is a big boost to reading readiness. Recognizing alphabet letters is one of the single strongest predictors of reading success. It lays a critical foundation for learning to read and write.

"You are your child's first and most influential teacher."
