Around the English-speaking world, 1 in 5 children cannot pass a basic reading test at the age of 11. Too many children fall through the cracks with literacy and it can have catastrophic effects on their lives, unless the right help is available to them.
The Easyread Team was delighted to be involved in the recent creation of a short documentary video about why this happens, and how each one of us can help. It features interviews with struggling readers, their parents, their teachers, and the literacy experts who are committed to helping every child learn to read.
