As many of us have seen, difficulties with basic reading skills at the Kindergarten level don’t usually disappear on their own. And, if a child processes information slowly, or can’t pay attention or remember, academic instruction will not help them learn to differentiate letter sounds or understand the meaning of what they are reading. If they are still struggling by the third grade, social studies and science will be closed books. Therefore, we believe that early intervention is critical if they are not to remain at a severe disadvantage throughout their academic and adult life.
