Helping struggling readers
Advice from Jean Gross CBE
Lots of parents worry about their child’s reading. Parents can be pretty competitive and when you hear the playground chat about how well another child is doing with her reading, it’s easy to feel that your child might be getting left behind. It’s important to remember that reading isn’t a race. Being a good reader might be the finishing line, but children get there in many different ways and at different speeds. Here, reading expert Jean Gross CBE shares her advice and tips about how to support children who struggle with reading.
