Raising A Future Reader With Lynn Klaiman

In today’s episode, we’re talking to Lynn Klaiman about Raising A Future Reader. Lynn is an educational specialist in the DC area who specializes in helping parents find educational solutions for their unique students. Today we will answer these questions:   At what age should you introduce literacy concepts? What are some ways you can support literacy at home? What are some ways you can support literacy while you’re out of the house (running errands, on a road trip, visiting with friends, etc.) What are some things you should avoid doing when promoting literacy in your little ones? Should you teach your child the alphabet before kindergarten? When can you start encouraging your child to read? When should parents worry that their child isn’t reading?   More about Lynn Lynn is a teacher, author, learning specialist, and private educational consultant. Lynn is proud to have worked in some of the very best schools in NYC and DC such as Dalton, Sidwell Friends, and Georgetown Day School. Most recently, Lynn worked as the lower school learning specialist for over a decade at Georgetown Day School. In my many years working with children, she truly enjoyed learning what makes each child unique. Lynn especially enjoys those “ah-ha” moments when kids make the connections needed to succeed at what was once challenging for them. By helping children discover their innate capacity to learn, she sets them on a path to unlock imagination, innovation, and all the possibilities in their life’s journey. She’s seen again and again that with the right tools and support, including working closely with parents, all children can feel confident and successful. Lynn is excited to share with you and your child the tools and tips that I have collected along the way. ​Currently, she lives in Washington, DC with her amazing husband. She has two grown children who make her very proud. For fun, she likes to take long walks with friends, go boating on the South River, swim in the ocean, read novels, and try new restaurants.
