Does your child seem to be faltering in his/her efforts to learn to read? Is it the curriculum? Is it you? Based on current research, this workshop is designed to help parents better understand the most essential elements of the reading process. You will learn the critical ingredients that must be emphasized to produce a successful, capable reader, no matter the age of your child.
