Reading and Writing

 

Visualizing and Verbalizing

Speed up reading comprehension skills with our small groups for all ages

Studies have shown that early reading comprehension skills is reliant on the ability to make mental pictures of what has been read. Yet, with the deluge of electronic visuals available today, many children and adolescents seem to be losing the ability to read with understanding.


If you are observing that your child dislikes reading chapter books even though they can read rather well or seems to be reading and re-reading the same chapter again for understanding, this may be the programme for them.


Students go through a step by step process in which our trainers bring them to visualise pictures before moving to a word level, sentence level, and paragraph level.  

Purpose:

  • Become competent readers

  • Increase pleasure in reading

  • Increase academic and writing performance

  • Improve efficiency in organising and sequencing information

 

Early Literacy Foundations (ELF Program)

Speed up reading and writing with our small group

Phonological awareness as an important predictor of reading success, yet this is rarely taught in class alongside phonics training. Our small groups for 6-7 year olds aim to increase sensitivity to sounds and help young readers acquire reading skills the right away – not through memorization!


Complements school phonics training. 

Purpose:

  • Speed up reading acquisition

  • Effective Dyslexia prevention programme

  • Also trains handwriting

 

Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing Program (LiPS) 

Intensive programme for children with reading difficulties, persistent spelling errors, and dyslexia

This programme builds on underlying weak phonemic awareness skills that contribute to poor spelling and decoding. Once the basic oral-motor speech sounds are learnt and mapped to letters, students can apply their knowledge to reading, writing, and spelling. Appropriate candidates will be considered following assessment.

 

Seeing Stars (Symbol Imagery)

Suitable for beginner readers and 'at-risk' early readers

This program teaches beginning readers consonant and vowel sounds and then progresses into syllables, prefixes and suffixes. Using these skills, students master hundreds of common sight words. The approach is based on symbol imagery (making a mental picture of the look and sound of words) for phonological and orthographic processing in reading and spelling.
