How to Improve Reading Skills?


Reading is an essential part of any child’s development on an emotional and intellectual level. By learning new words, a child will improve his/her language association skills, as well as improve their fundamentals of the language.

If you are worried about your child’s reading ability, don’t wait to test him. We at EmpowerKidz offer many grade-appropriate reading interventions, activities and practices. 

How to improve reading skills of children with learning difficulties? It can be done in many ways;


Makeup stories with children:


When a child tells a story out loud or in writing, we can prompt more precise vocabulary and encourage our child to incorporate detailed descriptions into their story. As the child looks for books in similar settings, this activity provides practice for thinking through logical sequences.

We at Empowerkidz can provide parents assistance to help their children with SOI Cognitive Skills Training.


Comparing Books and Films:


Compare and contrast the books and video versions of a book that we read with our child. What did we each appreciate or dislike about each form? Does our child prefer the book or the film?


Take part in library reading programs:


During school vacations, most libraries offer children reading programs. These are often tailored to the reading level of children, themed or feature some of the best works for children and young adults. Staff members might plan activities based on selected books, or organize field trips and special events that will help students explore the literature in depth. 


Reading Different Types of Material: 


Several of the best-rated works for children and young adults are available in digital form. It is a cognitive action when we see and hear words and phrases together that strengthens sight word recognition, improves punctuation practices, and makes it easier to use hard-to-pronounce words.


Flashcards and guesses:


Consider making flashcards and guessing the meanings of difficult or unfamiliar words for children as they read books. Look up unfamiliar words in the dictionary together or make flashcards with these words. By doing this, children develop the skill of inference, which involves thinking through the potential answers. 


Practice before flashcards:


Make sure the child practices spelling complicated words out loud or on paper before making flashcards. Provide opportunities for him to double-check spelling and find errors independently. Young students may enjoy using multisensory techniques, such as tracing the words with their fingertips. It teaches students to self-correct and reduces their fear of new words.


Get the Child’s Help:


Small tasks, such as finding out store hours, looking up directions, or reading the ingredients on a package of food, can give our child a sense of the practicality of reading.

EmpowerKidz can step in to help by training children to Executive functioning (EF) skills through various professional interventions.
