Title I First Quarter Tip for Parents

Help for Struggling Readers

Did you know that learning to read is a challenge for almost 40 percent of kids? The good news is that with early help, most reading problems can be prevented. Unfortunately, the older a child is, the more difficult it is to teach him or her to read. If a child can't read well by the end of second grade, odds are that he or she will have great difficulty catching up to grade level. The effects of falling behind and feeling like a failure can be devastating for a child. 

Early identification is crucial. Let us help you learn about how to support your child with reading difficulties.  Please call Mrs. Fernicola at 355-4230 for set up information about the web based program, Fast ForWord that is available to all students at SCE.  Click here to watch a short video about Reading & the Brain.
