At times, reading difficulties can be more than just academic. When children have difficulty processing communication, visually tracking and scanning words, it can make it frustrating to perform the act of reading. This may be confused for the child being lazy or not wanting to read, when in fact there may be a neurological or physical issue with reading. A thorough reading and communication assessment can determine if there are issues that can be addressed with therapy.
How Pediatric Therapy Helps
A thorough evaluation is performed to determine the quality of comprehension, visual tracking and if there are any difficulties with understanding or processing. Your child can be taught new skills to improve reading comprehension and make any adaptations that may be necessary. Coordination with the family and teachers helps make adaptations and corrections to reading skills easier for your child and to improve overall reading ability.
