Any adult struggling with reading will realise that reading is an advantage and will not only increase their confidence and self esteem, but potentially their safety.
Welcome to a non judgemental environment with a Blue Card holder with years of experience and privilege of of teaching children to read. If your child needs further testing for speech or learning difficulties, these will be spotted so that they can be referred for the help that is most appropriate.
Books are first and foremost enjoyable not only because we can learn from them but because they can take us on incredible journeys. Not everyone wants to grow up to have their nose permanently in a book, but everyone wants to become competent reader. If a child is not enjoying reading then I really want to figure out why, and fast! Once you or your child can make some reading progress they will be more confident, happy, and successful in the rest of their homework too. Reading is the most basic skill to achieve to pay dividends in every other subject and with the right help its going to be easier than you think!
