Reading can be a real struggle for kids with dyslexia. They may read less, and often have a hard time with language processing, memory, and comprehension. It can be hard for them to keep up with their classmates and feel like they’re falling behind. But it doesn’t have to be that way!
Fluency is the key to successful reading, and it means reading accurately and at an appropriate pace, with expression, and understanding what you’re reading. This can be a real challenge for dyslexic kids, but with the right tools, it’s possible.
