Get The Support You Need
Before reading and writing, children become aware that words are made up of sounds. Therapy in this areas builds that awareness of sounds, ready for its integration with the letters of the alphabet when phonics is introduced.
Some children need extra support with phonics and learning spelling patterns. Our therapy takes a sounds-up approach, meaning we start with the sounds we hear in words and build the spelling onto those.
Reading & Writing
Writing takes on different forms and therapy helps children to learn to use different structures and styles, for example writing instructions or writing a story. We work with children with and without a Dysgraphia diagnosis.
Reading involves the building blocks of awareness of sounds and phonics, but also encompasses so much more. We help children with their reading accuracy, fluency, and understanding. We work with children with and without a Dyslexia diagnosis.
