Education Information Session: The Struggle is “READ”

Homeschool Roster and Hardeman County Homeschoolers are hosting a free Education Information Session: The Struggle is Read – The Reasons Behind the Struggle and How to Overcome Them on Saturday, January 13, 2024, from 10 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. at the Bolivar-Hardeman County Library.


This workshop discusses reasons behind the struggle of learning to read and overview of areas needed to help to reinforce it. Is your child grappling with reversed letters in writing and struggling with basic word reading? The crucial link between handwriting and reading might hold the key. Engage with us in an interactive workshop, designed to explore, and apply effective methods for teaching accurate letter formation. Discover the pivotal role of precise letter sound production in enhancing reading skills. Gain insights into a visual perception disorder called Irlen Syndrome, which impacts a significant 46 percent of reading-challenged individuals and 12 percent to 14 percent of the general population.

Embark on a journey with us during the workshop as we unravel techniques, insights, and hands-on strategies to empower your struggling reader. Let’s make learning easy and enjoyable. Join us and make a positive change in your child’s reading progress.

Krista’s interactive workshop can benefit any parent that has a child who struggles with reading whether their child is homeschooled, or attends public school or private school.
