My 6yr old DD, is in kindergarten and the oldest in her class. She knows all of her letters and letter sounds but still has a hard time with reading. She loses attention easily and when I try to get her to read a word, she'll look at the word and just blurt our random words that are no way near the same thing. I try to get her to slow down and sound out each letter individually but after she sounds out the letters, she just guesses what it says. For instance, the word got: g-o-t. She'll sound it out and then say, "tigar" Its so frusterating! And her teacher even says shes behind in school, but she still shows that she wants to learn. I feel bad that she is not comprehending. How do I know if she is disslexic? Anyone have a child with reading difficulty? What helps them overcome this? I am running out of patience..please help
