How Can You Help Your Child To Read?

A parent never considers the process of learning to read until they start teaching their own children at home. Learning to read is not a simple process and is one that requires proper teaching of various skills and strategies. For your child to become a successful reader, you will need to ensure that the sounds of the English language are taught explicitly and are practised.

How Do I Choose The Right Level For My Child?
