You can save time, money and energy every day, by applying reading intervention processes that you are confident are suited to each child who is struggling. You can only do that by understanding the patterns you are seeing for each child.

It is so frustrating being unsure why a child is struggling! So step 1 is to come on our 9 Main Causes of Reading Difficulty training course.

9 Main Causes of Reading Difficulty Training

Over 5 short, weekly sessions, you will learn about the main causes of reading difficulty. And we will help remove the struggle in your classrooms with our tailored resources, support and advice. This is information gathered from research involving over 10,000 children. That is the equivalent of around 1000 years of teaching practice (if 10 children struggle in the average class)!

Each course is specified for your needs as a Teacher, Teaching Assistant or SENCO. It is free so get your colleagues to join us too. All they will need is our book The 9 Main Causes of Reading Difficulty, which is available from Amazon:
