Main Idea and Note Taking Tips for Parents
In August, The International Dyslexia Association (IDA) published in Dyslexia Connection: A Parent Newsletter an article I wrote for parents titled “Helping Your Child with Main Idea and Note Taking Skills”.
The article includes suggestions for how parents can help their children develop categorizing and main idea skills. It also presents an overview of the two-column note format that students can use when they are reading for homework.
Also in August, Dyslexia Connection included a helpful article about learning vocabulary titled “Skimming the Surface or Diving Deep? Morphology and Vocabulary” by Gail Venable.
