These are children who, despite good conventional classroom teaching are unable to learn to read because of the nature of their specific learning difficulties. They need a different kind of teaching – bespoke, individual, multi-sensory and cumulative with plenty of opportunity for over-learning.
For this reason, we work primarily with under-privileged children from deprived families and schools, children whose families are unable to afford expensive private assessments and tutoring. We believe that literacy is the key to social mobility and a fairer world.
