Help Them Read
With Confidence

Literacy is the foundation of good communication skills and should be introduced to children at a young age, before they start school. There are many ways to build good literacy skills, and Strides Therapy and Educational Services can help with making sure they are on the right track to better reading, writing and communication. No child should be left behind on these skills. If your child is having difficulties, we also assist with supporting children with literacy disorders such as dyslexia.

Does My Child Have Dyslexia?

Dyslexia is a language learning disorder affecting reading and writing skills. Your child may have dyslexia if they:


confuse letters that are similar in shape (e or c, d or b)


mix up letters when reading or writing words that were already introduced to them before


need to read something a few times to understand what they are reading

Dyslexia and other language disorders are best addressed and diagnosed as early as possible. If your child finds reading particularly challenging, reach out to us today to get started soon with helping them.

Improve Their Literacy Skills

Literacy is more than just reading and writing. Developing it also means improving on their ability to:


understand what they hear or read


link combined speech sounds and identify the words they form


identify written letters and produce their sounds


remember words from memory and use them right


use their learned communication skills to speak fluently and hold conversations

With regular practice and therapy, your child can build literacy skills early.
