Some kids with weak reading skills struggle to recognize and say the sounds in words. Others have trouble grasping the meaning of words. Skilled readers also need to be able to recognize and remember words automatically. So lots of practice is important.
If your child has a reading disability, she'll need direct, explicit instruction in a code-based reading approach (phonics). Her teacher or another trained professional should be doing the teaching, but there are many ways you can help her at home.
