Did you know that a child does not learn to read the
way he or she learns to speak? Reading is not a natural
process. Our brains were not designed to read. How
then does learning to read actually occur? Attend this
discussion and understand how the brain learns to read
and how this knowledge should be applied to home and
school as we teach our children how to read!
