Seeing Stars® for Reading Fluency and Spelling

Is reading fluency a problem for your child? Does your child have difficulty remembering sight words or words that cannot be sounded out? There are many reasons why a child has difficulties in reading. There may be a break down in their ability to segment words into their smallest visual or auditory components. There may be issues in visual or auditory memory which may lead to difficulty in remembering the spelling patterns of words. Children with dyslexia may also experience problems acquiring the large sight-word base necessary for fluency reading. Your child may have dyslexia or a reading disorder if he or she has difficulty with the following:

  1. Reading Rate
  2. Reading Accuracy
  3. Reading Multi-Syllable Words
  4. Spelling

Visualizing and Verbalizing for Language Comprehension and Thinking®

Does your child read words accurately, but struggle to comprehend the content? Do words seem to go in one ear and out the other? Are there problems with following directions in the classroom or at home? Do teachers say s/he is not trying or is lazy or inattentive? There are numerous reasons your child may be struggling in oral and/or written language comprehension and expression. Many children with difficulties in language comprehension have issues in concept imagery, the ability to quickly and accurately form mental pictures matching what we read and hear. This weakness causes students to get only “parts” rather than the whole picture. Additionally, deficits in concept imagery interfere with the ability to accurately recall and sequence information. Your child may have a language disorder if he or she has difficulty with the following:

  1. Reading Comprehension
  2. Retelling a story in the proper order
  3. Giving the main idea of the story
  4. Oral-Language Comprehension (following directions)
  5. Written-Language Skills (getting thoughts on paper)
