Reading Difficulties in a Kindergarten
Most kindergarten kids love school. What’s not to love? Coloring, playing with your friends, going on fun trips, and learning how to be in a school environment. And then the kids slowly get introduced to the alphabet, they start pronouncing words, and develop reading skills. Parents review the “sight” word with their kids nightly and beam at their child as they excel through the list of words pronounced correctly. Then, there are those parents that sit with their kids and don’t understand why their child is having such difficulty pronouncing the sight words. Night after night they are frustrated and disappointed. They think to themselves, “If my child is not excelling in kindergarten then what’s going to be with the rest of the grades?” If there is one grade where children enjoy school the most it’s kindergarten. With minimal homework, nap time, play time, this is where kids should feel the most positive.
What to look out for:
Fortunately, because parents are usually the ones reviewing homework with their kids nightly, they will be the first to pick up the reading difficulties first. Teachers may not notice until the end of the year being that they have so many other students to focus on. A parent will notice the child is unwilling to complete homework, and some may even get anxiety from the frustration of the reading difficulties. Difficulty manipulating sounds in words is one of the most noticeable signs of reading difficulties. Your child might struggle with rhyming, word games, or recognizing words that start with the same sound. You may have noticed in preschool where your child couldn’t learn letters and number symbols. Despite extensive efforts to teach the alphabet, they entered kindergarten knowing only 2 of the 26 letters.
What to do now:
After seeing that your child in kindergarten has difficulty reading, what the next step? Do you give up? Leave them behind? Or call Neurolinks. Neurolinks is a Physio-Neuro Therapy where the child will learn how to read and develop other necessary skills to shine in all areas of life. They will be excelling academically and socially. How does Neurolinks work? It’s a 6 month program that helps train the child’s brain using exercises. This is not your typical therapy. It’s an intense one-on-one method using mental and physical exercises to strengthen cognitive skills and treat each individual’s specific needs. Once a student masters one exercise, he or she is ready to move on to the next one. These exercises engage the body and the mind together and strengthen those weak areas of the brain. This increases the brain’s capacity to learn and perform learning tasks.
Most students with learning difficulties have problems with more than one brain process. Physio-Neuro Therapy works on multiple brain processing problems at once. This means that most academic issues as well as reading difficulties can be addressed through the same program. The greatest part about Neurolinks is that the effects of Physio-Neuro Therapy are permanent because the brain processing issues are eliminated. The National Institute of Child Health & Human Development (NICHD) considers that teaching and learning in today’s schools reflect not only significant educational concerns, but public health concerns as well. School failure effects a child’s self-esteem, social development, and opportunities for advanced education and meaningful employment.
Ensure your child that they are on the path to success and there reading difficulties today, will be surpassed in a short while with Neurolinks.
