Literacy Resources

Helping parents support their children based on the science of reading


Presented by Tamala Francis,
Founder & CEO at Francis & Co.

Most children are taught to guess or memorize words, not DECODE them.  Therefore it is important to assess if a child knows the rules of reading and can apply them to words they have never seen.  Use this list of nonsense words to screen your child's reading skills.  Each of the word lists are based on a set of rules; therefore, if your child is struggling with one or more lists, this may mean they need explicit and direct teaching of that rule before they can be successful readers


Listen now to learn about fun and practical ways that you can incorporate literacy into your child's everyday life!
