I am beside myself when my 7 year old tries to read. He doesn't seem to retain his sight words when he reads a sentence and just has a hard time reading. It is a real struggle and don't even get me started on his spelling words! He has been in a Sylvan program for over a year and that has helped him tremendously, but he still really struggles. His teacher is putting him in a reading program at school to help him. She has even tossed around him maybe having a learning disability. I guess my question is how do I help him overcome this huge frustration? Has anyone else ever had to deal with this problem?
