Many parents are unsure about how to help their child learn to read. They worry about how and when.
Research has come up with the pre-requisites and I outline them in this article.
Most children begin to learn to read around five or six years of age. Of course a few children do learn to read before this age. Researchers tend to think that before these ages most children have not formed the neural connections necessary for the decoding of print.
I am a firm believer in reading readiness. Hopefully you will understand why after reading this article.
