My 8 year old son is bright in math and other areas but is having difficulty reading. Any suggestions?

If (when) his vision issue can be addressed. Find short novels he may enjoy. The Spiderwicke Chronicles was a huge hit for my boys.

My oldest son struggled for a year before we realized he needed glasses. He's now 14 and isn't that keen on reading. He can read well though.

Thanks for the suggestions, actualy it was late last year when we realized he needed glasses. That may help. Other testing has been done so we are hoping the glasses are part of the problem. His father was a slow reader and he is a great reader today.

Have you had his eyes tested?
Have you had any other tests to see if there's a reason he's have troubles reading?
