New Model to help Identify Risk Factors for Reading Difficulties in Children
[Source: Science Daily]
Researchers at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center have developed a new framework for different factors influencing how a child’s brain is “wired” to learn to read before kindergarten.
This may help pediatric providers identify risks when the brain is most responsive to experiences and interventions. This “eco-bio-developmental” model of emergent literacy, described in the journal JAMA Pediatrics, reinforces the potential of early screening, prevention, and intervention during pediatric clinic visits in early childhood.
