Literacy is often defined as the ability to read and write, but literacy involves so much more. Literacy is also the ability to communicate and interact with the world around you in a meaningful way.
NONE of these children are fully literate.
When we talk about children needing reading intervention we immediately assume that the child is not able to decode (or sound out words), but often that is not the case. Literacy includes all of these areas. Any one or more of these area could potentially be a weakness for a child or adult and may need specific focus for instruction.
If you, or your child, is struggling in any of these areas of literacy, we are here to help! Contact us today for information.
