Helping Young Children To Recognize Sounds

Child Reading PicHelping a young child to learn how to read is no doubt one of the most precious and heart-warming times in the life of a parent. Some parents find this phase to be quite challenging, and it can be quite so since a lot of parents are first time parents. One strategy is to guide the child to get used to the various sounds of speech and how they relate to text. Most children in this country that are raised in English-speaking homes wont have any trouble with this, but helping a child to learn a language different from the popular local language can be difficult. This is because they need help to perceive the subtle differences in the sounds of various words.

Another important way to help is to help them learn to articulate and phonetically render certain sounds correctly. You could also try to play little games with them to help them learn new words and sounds and to repeat back to them anything they say that is incorrect. In this way, they can quickly learn where they made an error and how to correct it. Helping young children may be challenging, but it brings much satisfaction indeed!
