Here at Easyread we've been honored to take part in creating a new mini documentary exploring chronic literacy issues in American schools and what can be done to change this.
Rather than focusing on the problem alone, the documentary aims to shed light on the solutions that are already out there helping children. So often we can get wrapped up in diagnosing the problems, but then the process seems to halt. In our experience, once you have pinpointed the underlying cause of difficulty, then applying the targeted solution is so much easier - not to mention more effective! We would always advise looking into possible causal issues in the visual, auditory or memory spheres before launching into a remedial program.
Take a look at the video below to see information from developmental optometrists, reading specialists, parents and children -- all of which gives hope for every struggling reader.
We've poured our heart and soul into helping put this together, so please do share it on your social media pages if you feel its message is a good one!
