๐Ÿ’ฅ ๐Ÿ’ฅ Children by the age of between 4 and 6 develop an awareness that words can come apart.

๐Ÿ’ฅ ๐Ÿ’ฅ By between 6.5 to 7 years, most children can count the number of phonemes they hear in small words (about 70%).

๐Ÿ’ฅ ๐Ÿ’ฅ About 30% of children who cannot separate the sounds in spoken words after a year of reading instruction likely reflect the 20-30% of schoolchildren who experience dyslexia.

๐Ÿ’ฅ ๐Ÿ’ฅ Training a young child to attend to the sounds in spoken words before he goes to school significantly improves his success in learning to read later on.
