Speech & Language Treatment & Consultations

Reading & Writing

20-25% of children in schools have difficulty learning to read.  It is not uncommon for a child who has language difficulties in school-age language to demonstrate at least some difficulty learning to read.

What can reading difficulties look like in my child?

Trouble with the following:

  • Learning words to songs and rhymes and playing with sounds in words
  • Learning the alphabet
  • Letters and numbers
  • Telling left from right, making it hard to read and write since both skills require this directionality
  • Identifying the sounds that correspond to letters, making learning to read difficult
  • Sounding out unknown words
  • Spelling
  • Mixing up the order of letters in words while writing
  • Reading and comprehending material
  • Formulating and organizing ideas when writing stories and expository text
