All children ages 3-5 are invited to receive a 10-minute FREE Early Literacy Screening at Lake Nona High School courtesy of Nemours Brightstart!
Specially trained staff will work one-on-one with each child to check their knowledge of print, letter names,sounds and listening skills that support the abilities required in learning to read. After the 10-minute screening, parents will receive a free copy of A Parent’s Guide to Reading Readiness.
Utilize this wonderful opportunity to find out where your child’s literacy strengths lay and what you can do to help them improve in any other areas before they start school!
Nemours, one of the nation’s leading children’s health systems, created BrightStart! to identify children at risk for dyslexia and reading failure during pre-kindergarten, when preventive action can help the most. Nemours BrightStart! screens thousands of pre-kindergartners each year, and provides those showing risk for reading failure with intensive, small-group educational lessons to prepare them forfuture reading success.
