Approximately 10% of school aged children have problems with reading and writing. Research has shown that in order for children to learn to read and write they need to be able to understand:
- that words are made up of sounds
- that letters represent sounds
- writing in a particular order can make different meanings.
Research has also shown that getting help for literacy problems early can prevent those problems becoming more severe.
Speech Moves has helped many children over the Newcastle and Port Stephens regions to become competent readers through addressing the fundamental phonological awareness skills needed to master reading.
