Reading SOS: How can I help my first grader remember the alphabet in our home language of Spanish?
Elsa says that it's important to find out early if your child is having difficulty with letters and sounds. Ask your child's teacher if she has been screened or tested in your home language, and learn the early warning signs for dyslexia. Elsa also shares easy ways to help your child practice letters and sounds at home — one way is to build on the connections between English and Spanish. Observe your child's progress and don't hesitate to talk with your child's teacher about any concerns.
