We live in a world that assumes that anyone who deviates from the established school timeline “has something wrong” with them. Late readers are a large portion of this group.
What if I were to tell you that not all late readers have a learning disability? What if I were to tell you that MOST late readers do not have a learning disability?
It’s time to stop looking at children as inanimate science experiments and treat them as the unique individuals they are.
One thought on “Most Late Readers Are NOT Learning Disabled”
The best advice I was given about reading was when my son was 6 1/2 years old and could still not sound out basic words like cat and dog. I was advised by a veteran homeschool mom to you just hold off and try again at age 7, and spend time reading aloud to him instead of doing reading instruction. At seven something clicked and he started reading chapter books almost overnight. He’s now nine and is an avid reader who LOVES to learn. I’m convinced if he were in school he would think he was dumb and would not be flourishing the way he is. Love this video and will be sharing. 💕
