If you homeschool your child, you want to know the evidence based way to teach your child to read. Or perhaps your child is starting school soon and you want to be sure the foundation for reading has been properly laid. You might even have received feedback from pre-school that your child struggles with phonological awareness.

Whatever your reason for wanting to help your child, you will never be sorry you did. Phonological awareness is critical for learning to read any alphabetic writing system. In fact, poor phonological awareness is the best early predictor of dyslexia, and the earlier you work on these skills, the better the prognosis.

In this course you will learn what phonological awareness means and how you can develop the necessary skills in your child.

Research shows that the best kind of early intervention involves the parents. Parent-implemented intervention is effective because the parent plays a key role in the child's life, and also because intervention becomes an ongoing process. In this course you will be trained to do a daily short activity that will improve your child's phonological awareness.

Please remember many children still require ongoing speech therapy. While this course includes exercises your speech therapist probably would have prescribed for developing phonological awareness, parents still need guidance from the speech-language pathologist as the child’s skills change and develop.
