#1 Predictor of Reading Success

Dear Reading Fans,

Sometimes I feel being a Dyslexia Specialist is incredibly easy. At the least, it's very enjoyable for me.

Working with kids? - Completely Awesome

Kids with "learning challenges"? - I just don't see a challenge. All I see is a different way to strategize. No problem.

Listening to people read? - Love it!

Being patient? - I don't see a problem.

I am lucky, but only 100% of the time.

The thing is, the #1 predictor of reading success is attributed to:

Phonemic Awareness and Manipulation

A fancy way of saying:

Changing sounds in words.

This is such an important skill that it comes before actual reading!

When a teacher tells a parent to read more with your kid for success, I'm not saying that's a bad idea, but it's also not correct.

We need to do something differently!

Different instruction is going to create a different outcome.

My Sound Juggling Program is DIFFERENT, and that is why it will help your child learn to read.

Different = good :-)

Love,

Heidi Nord
