We are very excited that our readers are as interested in early literacy as we are here at Springer!

Understanding reading development in young children can be tricky for parents who are not educators. When assessing their children’s reading skills, parents do not want to over-worry and be bothersome to the teacher when everything is fine, yet parents also do not want to be too lax and wait for things to get better if that’s not the right thing. Oh what is a parent to do?

Boys are more likely to present with hyperactive and impulsive symptoms, while girls are more likely to present with inattentive symptoms.
