Helping Your Child Learn--A Windy Row Presentation

Do you know how children learn to read? Do you know how to recognize if a child needs professional help?

On Wednesday October 14 at 3:45 p.m., Windy Row's Stephanie Hood will offer a free presentation to parents, educators and professionals at Highbridge Elementary School in New Ipswich. She will explain the mechanics of reading and why some children struggle, answer questions and suggest ways to address reading issues for families and teachers. Many thanks to Highbridge Principal Marion Saari who invited Stephanie to speak at the school.
