Literacy is one of the most important skills a child learns during their school journey. When a child struggles to adequately obtain these skills it causes no end of challenges. It's why the correct intervention is so crucial for their ongoing achievement, self-esteem and success.
Effective literacy skills are fundamental to a child's learning as they open the door to everything else within their school learning journey. Way up on top of the priority list is reading. When children start they learn to read, then once that skill is mastered they read to learn.
With my many years of experience teaching reading to those with learning difficulties and dyslexia, I haven't yet met a child that hasn't improved and gained confidence in their ability, once they receive the right intervention. It might be small steps of progress at a time depending on the child's difficulty, but those small steps add up and the results can literally be life changing.
Without question, every child
should be given that chance.
