Struggling reader in 6th grade

Hi! My neighbor just approached me and said his 6th grade son struggles with reading. He says he has about a 3rd grade reading level. He wants to find help for him. Iíve been a kindergarten teacher for 16 years so past sounding out words, I donít have expertise in this. Plus Iím so busy with my own little ones so I wouldnít be much help.

Does anyone know of any online tutoring programs that works help with this?

I would suggest someone trained in an Orton Gillingham method like Wilson Reading System or The Barton System. Some provide online tutoring.

Go to an IDA (International Dyslexia Association) web page for your region and they will have a list of qualified providers of tutoring services.

For example, in northern California the link would be:

Does your neighbor know the cause of the problem? Is it the phonics section (like he can't sound out or read the words accurately) or is it the comprehension?
