Where to Begin
What can parents do at home to help children be ready for reading? From infancy there are many learning and language opportunities that will prepare your child to learn to read. From reading books to saying silly rhymes and playing "I Spy...", we will show you how to engage with your child in a literacy friendly way. We will discuss the specifics of how to introduce letters, how to hold a pen, whether to use capitals or lower case letters and more.
Get Reading is based on current research which shows that good pre-literacy and language skills are positive indicators for learning to read. Additionally research indicates that a rich vocabulary is closely linked to good comprehension.
Reading with ease facilitates learning, which creates confidence and a love of learning. A multisensory approach to learning literacy has been proven as the most effective method for ensuring success in literacy development.
Attend a one and a quarter hour workshop in a small group. Workshops are personal and interactive. Courses are offered in Bondi Junction, or get a group of parents together (8 to 10 people) and we will come to your home.
