When your child learns to read on their own using Synthetic Phonics, it is one of those monumental occasions as a parent.
You might think that your child is doing really well with their reading but then they suddenly start struggling with more complex texts. What can be the problem you might be wondering when they were doing fine not so long ago?
It`s simple really. When children first learn to read the vocabulary is smaller and the child can use their visual memory to remember different words used in their books. However, as they get older and the books become more complicated they can`t use that memory process as well. This leads to frustration and guessing. The child might rebel saying they no longer want to read.
There is no need to worry too much because they can help their children to learn to read correctly using Synthetic Phonics. Synthetic Phonics will certainly help with the reading process if it is presented to the child in an appropriate way for that child. Learning solutions can be found that will ease the child back into reading and if they use the Synthetic Phonics approach, their reading should take off completely in around 6-9 months. Once the child has been taught how to read, their world will open up as they engage with one type of text after another.
