Since language is the foundation of most other academic learning, a solid reading ability is imperative to your children’s education. The Parents as Reading Tutors (PART) teaching method can help you build that learning foundation.
The purpose of this three-part series is to teach parents how to apply PART—an easily learned, scientifically developed program that parents can use to help children with reading problems. In as little as 15 minutes a day, research has shown that reading speed, comprehension, and reading test scores increase significantly when parents use PART as directed, even for children with reading disabilities, learning disabilities, and/or dyslexia. Through this series, Dr. Steven Duvall teaches parents how to be involved and effective in helping their children learn to read.
In this first of three sessions, Dr. Steven Duvall introduces the Parents as Reading Tutors (PART) teaching plan. Parents will learn how to (1) prepare for a PART tutoring session, (2) recognize different kinds of reading errors, (3) determine their child’s reading level, and (4) graph their child’s reading progress.
