Reading Programs

Many children seem to have no trouble learning to read. Even when very young, they begin making connections between letters and sounds, sounds and words, words and thoughts. For these children, the process of reading seems simple and natural. For other children, however, learning to read is a continuous struggle.


Difficulties with basic reading and language skills are the most common of all learning disabilities, affecting up to 80 percent of people who have learning problems. According to the National Institutes of Health, one out of every ten children has significant problems with reading skills. Medical and education specialists use many terms to refer to these problems, including "reading differences," "reading disorders," "reading difficulties," and "dyslexia."
