NOTE FROM PAC
Are you wondering why your child struggles with reading? Does your child recognize letters and sight words one day, but completely forget them the next? Does your child avoid reading, because it’s “too hard”? Do you worry that your child is still reversing letters, or that it takes them longer to read than their brother, sister, or classmates? Dr. Kira Armstrong, Ph.D., will explain how children learn to read and why they struggle. She will discuss the early signs of reading delays and reading disorders, and explain what dyslexia really is. Finally, she will present recommendations regarding when and how to assess your child for dyslexia and the different kinds of reading programs available to teach every child how to read. Please join us for this wonderful presentation on Monday January 11 at 7:00 P.M in the School Committee Room at Burlington High School. For more information on this presentation or the Burlington Parents Advocating for their Children's Education group please contact Dennis McCarron at firstname.lastname@example.org or 781-273-5663.
