Helping Children Learn To Read
How to help a child to learn to read, without specialist training
Helping a child learn to read can be a very technical task. I helped both my sons learn to read in the 1990's and it was a traumatic experience for both of us.
English is by far the hardest of all the European languages to learn to read and children often need considerable help.
Easyread is all about helping to make the learning to read process easy.
The reason it is so tricky is that English words have 44 sounds in them and over 200 letter patterns that can represent them. That is over 4 letter patterns for each sound. You know how inconsistent English spelling is; gas, has, was, trough, tough, tought, bough, borough... I could go on all day.
There are no spelling rules that work consistently and so it cannot be taught in that way.
The best way to help a child to read is to make reading practice easy. Reading English is a skill you learn through practice. So Easyread delivers the TrainerText system to make it a straightforward process.
We first help by presenting very strong visual characters for each sound in the language. Then we present the text with these same characters above the text. This helps your child learn to read by making decoding unfamiliar words easy.
We have found that most children with this sort of reading help learn to read in around 6-9 months. Some have struggled for years with conventional reading help and go virtually nowhere.
