Is Prentice the right solution for your child?
Is your bright and creative child having difficulty mastering the written and spoken word? Do you wonder why it’s hard for him or her to:
- Read, spell, and write?
- Follow directions?
- Retrieve words?
- Comprehend math facts?
- Use fluid, legible handwriting?
- Work to potential?
The problem may be a language learning difference.
Language learning differences (also referred to as Specific Language Disability, SLD or Dyslexia) interferes with a child’s ability to retain and express language at a level commensurate with their average to above average intelligence. If your child exhibits these symptoms—especially a reading or spelling problem—you should seek a professional opinion.
Early intervention is critical
Studies show that when children with a language learning difference are provided with appropriate instruction by age 8, they have an 85 percent chance of achieving excellent academic growth. But if they not get help until age 10-11, their chance of achieving significant academic growth plummets to only 15 percent. Please don’t wait until your child is in third or fourth grade to address this issue. Early intervention is critical to preventing frustration and academic failure.
