Encouraging Late/Reluctant Readers
Back in May, I presented a new talk at the VaHomeschoolers Conference, “Encouraging Reading in Late and Reluctant Readers,” based on an article that I wrote for the VaHomeschoolers Voice.
In preparing for the talk, I searched out some links to provide additional support for allowing your child to come to reading on his or her own timetable (something especially important if you have a right brained learner whose “normal” timetable is different from what is traditionally expected in school.) Some of these links will be familiar to those who read this blog, but a few are new so I decided to post them here too.

- Reading – Slow and Gentle by Annete MacKay
- Creative Ways to Encourage Students to Read
Hope that these articles provide you support and information as you help your “late” or “reluctant” reader on his or her journey to reading!
