Lianne helps children who :

  • struggle to read at grade level
  • have been identified by their teacher as being ‘at risk’ because not being able to read puts them at risk of failing further down the line
  • are failing English as a subject at school
  • read mechanically but need to read for meaning
  • struggle with other subjects, including Mathematics, because of their inability to read for meaning
  • who want to cope better with the amount of reading expected of them when they reach high school
  • who speak English as a second or third language

What Reading Therapy does:

  • Moves the individual from learning to read through to reading to learn
  • Increases the chance of ALL subject marks improving
  • Improves self-confidence
  • Develops positive self-esteem
  • Reading becomes enjoyable rather than a chore and the child now reads for pleasure
  • Schoolwork & homework is completed faster, accurately & with greater independence
  • Children experience greater success & are therefore motivated to study further
  • Children cope better in high school and with the demands of tertiary education
