What kind of strategies a concerned parent can use to help improve his or her child's reading and writing skills?
Have the child read every day a set time period (depending on age). If a poor reader, an adult needs to sit in on the reading. My seven year old reads twenty min a day.
Writing: keeping a daily journal is a must and very effective.
Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Here are some sites that might give you ideas:

Of course, the age of your child is important, plus what you have already observed in the skills.
P.S. Even "audiobooks" can be fun.
You can also encourage the child to write letters to friends and/or relatives.
I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
