troubles in prep

My child is in Prep and is not easily learning sight words or associating sounds and letters.

As parents we are anxious to see our children succeed academically. Children learn best when they are relaxed and motivated so it is important that they don’t feel any of your anxiety. Remember learning to read is not a sprint and the early foundations must be in place before the child can truly master the world of print.


  • Have fun with sounds-Find words that begin with particular sounds. Play ‘I spy’ using sounds rather than letter names.
  • Continue to read to your child regularly and discuss the story, look for familiar words, highlight words the start with the same sound.

An assessment by a speech pathologist can determine whether your child has any underlying sound awareness difficulties that may be the basis of their problem with learning to read. Treatment programmes are available to help with these difficulties.
