We welcome students from all disciplines. Patience, understanding and compassion are necessary skills. A basic understanding of phonics and the decoding strategies used by beginning readers would be advantageous.
We would expect the children to improve in terms of reading age as measured by teacher assessment before and after the programme.
The student will gain a valuable insight into the difficulties encountered by children when learning to read. Throughout the programme the student will also be supported by teaching staff to develop strategies and techniques to help learners overcome barriers to learning to read.
