How a Reading Specialist Can Help Your Child Become a Great Reader

Last updated 7 years ago

With the wide range of reading abilities in any given classroom, the role of the reading specialist has become ever-more important in a child's education.

Some children may have reading difficulties that require a little extra help to improve their accuracy, rate and comprehension. Some may have learning disabilities that require more specific tutoring. Whatever the case, a reading specialist is a great resource to have on your side when teaching your child how to read.

A reading tutor may be able to help your child with:

  • Difficulty sounding-out or decoding words.
  • Dyslexia.
  • Difficulties with understanding what is read.
  • Writing problems.
  • Difficulties related to learning English as a second language.


A literacy program helps to reinforce the skills your child learns at school and at home, and a reading specialist is trained in ways of teaching reading that can help bolster their success.

A good reading specialist can help your child excel in reading at their grade level, comprehension and writing, all through a system that is supportive and encouraging to the child.

The first part of a good literacy program includes an assessment to recognize the child's academic strengths and weaknesses. From there a reading specialist will design and individualized program to strengthen the student’s weakness.

By taking part in a one-to-one reading tutoring program, your child should see improvements in their reading, writing, and self-esteem, allowing them to excel in all areas of the classroom.

Our experts at the Literacy and Language Center are well-versed in what it takes to help a child overcome reading difficulties.
