Dr. Kepesh will describe the stages of pre-reading and early reading, will provide tips on how to read with your child, which language games will support reading readiness, how to help a child practice and deepen reading skills, and will also describe how to know if your child is on track.

Part 2 (6:30-7:15): A workshop for parents who want to support their child who is nearing reading independence or already reading well - even your teenagers!
Dr. Kepesh will describe how to support a child into reading independence, how to choose reading material that will keep your child engaged, how to help your children use reading to build vocabulary, thinking skills and writing skills, and how to create a home reading environment for families with children at different stages.
