My Reading Specialist offers consulting for parents to train YOU how to teach your child to read.
Here is what it consists of:
- First meeting-I assess the student to make sure he is ready to read and see what skills he might already know. I review the assessments with you and give you feedback. These assessments are then used to create individualized lessons for your child. (usually takes about 1 hour total)
- Second meeting-I will bring various lessons, games, and activities (for you to keep) based upon what skills your child needs to become a reader. These lessons will be individualized based upon his previous assessments. I will TRAIN you (the parent/caregiver) how to administer these lessons and offer suggested timetables for application. (usually takes about 1 hour total)
- Third meeting-This meeting usually takes place after the majority of the lessons have been covered. I will administer follow-up assessments and see which skills were retained successfully and can be applied by your student, and what skills may need to be recovered. I will offer advice and additional consulting if new lessons are needed (but that is not usually the case). (usually takes about 1 hour total)
