OB­STA­CLES TO the devel­op­ment of lit­er­acy skills and the strate­gies needed to over­come them were dis­cussed at a cof­fee morn­ing for par­ents of chil­dren with learn­ing dif­fi­cul­ties, held at Kisharon Day School. Run by head­teacher Sora Kopf­stein, it was geared to­wards help­ing par­ents to be part of the ed­u­ca­tional process while hav­ing re­al­is­tic ex­pec­ta­tions of what can be achieved. Mrs Kopf­stein said: “Lit­er­acy isn’t just about read­ing — it is about ac­quir­ing and us­ing skills through our en­vi­ron­ment. For ex­am­ple, learn­ing to recog­nise foods or prod­ucts through the sym­bols on pack­ag­ing or re­mem­ber­ing signs at a shop­ping cen­tre.”
