Why SOME SMART KIDS Cannot read

Information Parents Must know

Reading is critical for success in school and in life and yet, millions of capable children are not learning to read and spell well in school. That is also the main reason why the struggling students cannot comprehend what they have read because technically they cannot read. 

Smart and even extremely smart as well as highly gifted individuals cannot read if they have very weak phonological skill.

 

Their high IQ score/intelligence and gifted range in abstract reasoning and logic do not predict reading success in the beginning stages but it is the phonological skill of the students. It is how well they manipulate the sounds – connect, remove, add, transfer the sounds because the English language is based on elemental sounds, the foundation for learning to read.

This is the reason why the Kindergarten and grade one teachers have the most important and greatest responsibilities in our children’s future because Kindergarten and grade one teachers can “make” or “break” our future, unless there are highly skilled reading instructors who could teach the students with a specific learning disability to learn how to read well.

 

After learning to read the focus will shift to reading to learn from the very simple to advanced level. This is where the students can fully apply their intelligence and reasoning abilities. This is the stage where the students will use interpretative strategies: comprehending, questioning, analyzing, and summarizing the concepts.
