Reading and literacy are two aspects of school that children with LDs often struggle with. Finding strategies to help your children can often be daunting. Our workshop’s focus will be on understanding the foundational skills of reading (phonological awareness), and how parents can informally build these skills at home. The workshop will be interactive and discussion is a key component. So come with lots of questions about literacy and plan for an evening of learning!
