I am so grateful that Sharon has put all her valuable time, knowledge and experience into developing these holistic ideas into a cohesive programme that is easy and practical to implement. Teach Your Child To Read With Movement, Fun & Games is user friendly for parents because of it’s clear, simple layout, it is easy to see exactly what you need for each game, what teaching the game instils and the use of nursery rhymes and games familiar to most parents. It is also attractive and welcoming to children with its appealing pictures, colourful, bright pages and worksheets.
The book is based on a collection of sound theories originating from the fields of occupational therapy and remedial teaching. Various theories and frames of references underlying the development of reading have been intertwined into this book. By including the sensory-motor
foundations of reading, Sharon has managed to bridge the gap between the developmental foundations needed for reading and the academic learning which follows.
Sharon has converted complex terminology into a user friendly language and highlighted
the importance of movement and play to efficiently develop reading. By integrating the building blocks that are vital for reading such as vestibular processing, bilateral integration and memory, Sharon has managed to combine therapeutic knowledge and strategies into simple games which parents can use to teach reading in a fun and playful way; thus removing the stress and negative feelings many children feel towards learning to read.
Sharon’s book gives parents and teachers some very effective therapeutic tools, presented
as simple games. Teach Your Child To Read With Movement, Fun& Games is a must have book for parents and educators who seek to develop children’s reading skills in order to ensure a happy and confident reader. I am proud to know Sharon as a friend and colleague who has a love for children.
