Reading therapy is different from tutoring or standard reading programs because it identifies why your child’s brain, eyes and auditory system is not processing sounds, symbols and phonics in the same way as children who learn to read without challenge as well why your child may have poor reading comprehension. Once the underlying factors are identified such as eye instabilities, weak auditory processing, poor core development then corrective therapies are applied so that your child can learn to read fluently without years of ongoing tutoring, accommodations and other tools to manage a disorder. Reading therapy is more focused on correction and then re-enforcement rather than practicing in a way that likely won’t work for your child because it hasn’t worked in the past.
