RAR #230: Helping Your Differently Wired Kids Fall in Love with Reading
Are you struggling with how to tackle reading in your homeschool?
Maybe you have a child who’s a later reader or is having a tough time connecting with reading. Or maybe you have a kid who’s an advanced reader and they’re outpacing books that fit their emotional and social development.
Either way, it can be hard to know what to do to help your child build a strong relationship with reading that they’ll carry with them throughout their lives.
Today, I’m sharing a session from the Great Homeschool Conventions that I led with my friend and colleague Colleen Kessler of Raising Lifelong Learners.
In this conversation, we’ll talk about the challenges that come up with readers at both ends of the bell curve and how to help your differently wired kids fall in love with reading.
In this episode, you’ll hear:
- Three practical strategies for helping struggling readers: read-alouds, phonics, and time
- Signs your child might be dyslexic and recommended resources for working with a dyslexic brain
- How to help your advanced reader develop discernment in their book choices
