Decoding strategies for parents
The definition of decoding for reading:
Decoding is the process of translating print into speech by rapidly matching a letter or combination of letters (graphemes) to their sounds (phonemes) and recognizing the patterns that make syllables and words. There is an area in the brain that deals with language processing and does this process automatically.
Teachers and reading specialists are trained to use these decoding strategies from early phonemic awareness with alphabet learning, to phonics, and reading words, full sentences, and paragraphs.
Parents at home can help this process! The brochures listed below can help caregivers with extra help in decoding strategies for fluency, comprehension, phonics, and more.
