When Should I Begin to Pay Attention to My Child’s Reading Struggles?

My child is struggling with reading and spelling. When should I begin to be concerned?

There are some questions to ask yourself –

  • Did my child struggle with sounds as they were developing language?  
    • Mix up the sounds in words?
  • Does my child struggle with spelling too?
    • Struggled to learn the sounds for letter of the alphabet?
  • Can my child read a new word well, or can they only read a word if they have seen it many times?
  • Does my child read very slowly?
  • Did one of the parents or other close family members struggle with reading, writing, or spelling?
