Chief Medical Officer outlines link between reading challenges and low self esteem
The link between a child having a poor reading ability and experiencing low self esteem has been highlighted by the Federation’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr Patrick Martin.
According to the Chief Medical Officer having reading challenges can often lead to feelings of anxiety and anger.
Dr Martin highlighted the link between a young person having reading problems and resorting to violent behaviour. He also praised the Ministry of Health’s reading recovery programme which he says aims at preventing violent activity occurring in St Kitts and Nevis.
