Your Perfect Child
Diana Boggia has a masters degree in education with licensure in preschool, elementary and special education. She taught children with multiple disabilities for 15 years and has been working with parents (families) with behavioral concerns for more than 23 years. She develops individualized strategies to build self esteem and diminish negative, attention-seeking behaviors for each child to be successful in achieving remarkable results. Throughout her work with parents Diana has developed a program that includes hands-on materials encompassing limit-setting, developing structure with schedules, teaching time management, increasing listening skills and parenting with incentives, rather than threats. These successful strategies have changed the dynamics of many families who were struggling with their child¹s behaviors.

It’s so easy to nurture a love for reading while your child is young. However, as children grow, some loose interest in books, so stick with it, become creative and follow some of these ideas for emergent or resistant readers:



*Be a diabolical reader; talk through the story rather than read it, as your child follows or draws the pictures. *Create a personalized family photo album with family names captioned. *Use puppets, dolls and stuffed animals to tell the story or join you for reading. *Play picture-word lotto. *Use alphabet cookie cutters for family names. *Read the story, then watch the movie together. *Introduce chapter books for character investment. *Offer a bedtime basked, filled with several books or Brain Quest to develop independent bedtime reading. *Bake or prepare food together, following a recipe. *Make it easy by bringing home books that interest your reader.



Whether your child is reading comics or chapter books, recipes or game directions, continue to nurture and support those skills, because every word counts! Read the entire article “Early reading abilities can help produce a leader”.
