Reading Therapy

ReadingThere are various signs a child may have a reading disorder, such as dyslexia. Signs include:

  • Difficulty breaking words into sounds and syllables
  • Difficulty associating letters with sounds
  • No interest in books or being read to
  • Difficulty rhyming
  • Difficulty recognizing his own name or common names like “mom” or “dad” in print
  • Trying to memorize text, particularly older children
  • Difficulty reading aloud

Reading disorders therapy is most appropriate for children ages 4 and older. Therapy sessions are personalized to meet each child’s needs, including an exercise plan to follow at home. It’s important for parents to be involved in therapy to ensure the child gets the most from his therapy plan.

After we evaluate your child, he/she has access to a full range of therapy services. The level of therapy depends on age, goals, and disorder. We also offer an intensive therapy plan that includes two to three sessions a week, at least.

Our clinicians are specially trained in phonological awareness (knowing what oral language sounds like), phoneme production (pronouncing words correctly) and written passage comprehension. These capabilities are essential in reading. Our speech therapists and audiologists provide individualized, one-on-one therapy and are available to assist with issues beyond reading.
