One technique Dr. Ness uses for younger children is print-focused, during which the parent or instructor asks the child to point to a specific word or letter on the page, which helps reinforce word recognition. When teaching older children, Dr. Ness will go over reading comprehension, stopping at various points to ask questions about the story, something she discusses in her book, Think Big With Think Alouds.
In addition to parental coaching services, Dr. Ness—who has more than 15 years of teaching and clinical reading experience—also offers educational evaluations and works with teachers and schools to provide additional professional support.
A Reading Mother is located at 16 School St. in Rye. For more information, call 434-242-3733, email [email protected], or visit areadingmother.com.
