Top 5 ways to boost the confidence of struggling readers:

RK-Top5--confidence

1. When working with your children stay calm and supportive. Don’t be judgmental, angry, or disappointed.

2. Use modeling where you read a section aloud & then your children read the same section aloud.

3. Acknowledge your children’s feelings. Don’t try to convince them that the problems don’t exist.

4. Make videos of your children reading & watch them together later so they can see the improvement.

5. Train skills your child has problems with, but keep that part of the work to short, manageable sessions.
