Two Hour Workshops

Wrestling with Reading – When Letters Don’t Add Up

Often, the main strategy for children to acquire reading skills is to go home with a reader and a page or two of frequently used words to learn and memorise. This strategy alone leaves many children with learning difficulties grappling at the concept of how words and reading really work. In addition, although phonics is crucial for reading success, formal death by phonics type programs are often confusing and overwhelming for many children with learning difficulties. A different approach is commonly required to assist children with learning difficulties to become successful readers. Furthermore, there are neurological reasons why many children with learning difficulties may be struggling to read which must also be discussed and addressed to improve reading ability.

Join us for a frank information and action orientated session on helping at risk children to read.
