    Fluency is reading smoothly with understanding. If you are helping kids with dyslexia learn to read, you already know how elusive this skill can be. Remember, people with dyslexia need a different method to learn in a way that sticks.

    Reading fluency is the ability to read quickly, accurately and with the right expression. Fluent readers understand what they read. Read to your child to show what fluent reading sounds like. You can choose stories and books that will interest her. Read naturally, with the right emotion or tone to match the words you’re reading. If you are busy, you can also have your child listen to audio-books as she follows along with the matching book.

    You can choose a short piece from a story or a poem, and read it aloud while your child listens and follows along. Then read just the first line of the piece and have your child read it back to you. Read the second line of the piece and have your child read it back to you. Continue until you have completed the piece. Repeat several times.
