"Reading is a basic tool in the living of a good life."
Mortimer J. Adler, educator
Reading is one of the 3 R's. Even with technology, to succeed in life one must be able to read efficiently. iPhones, iPads, e-readers and computers all require the user to be able to read.
Many students with
learning disabilities not only have trouble learning to read but when they do learn to read they don't have any desire to read. This is usually because
reading was always a struggle for them. Social studies and history curriculum, science books and reading basals were nothing more than mini torture chambers.
Reading is the Cornerstone to Success! It is the gateway to the future. Even if your child decides not to go to
college, she may decide to go to a trade school or just to get a job. EITHER WAY, she will still have to read something!
It is your job as a parent or a teacher to get the student reading! The only way to do this is to find a topic she is interested in and let her read anything and everything on the subject.
Once a student finds a subject they are interested in, they can
addicted to reading. Once a child becomes addicted to reading, then they will have a solid foundation for success and a cornerstone that can't be moved.
