Reading is a complex task which is not an automatic skill for many students. Reading is hard work and no matter whatever approach or method is used to teach reading, most students can become proficient. However, teachers worldwide need support and training in identifying children at risk of reading failure. Research has shown that understanding the development of important skills required of a proficient reader is a critical part of successful reading. Our goal is to help eliminate children’s struggle with learning to read in English.
