Turn struggling readers into successful readers

Is your child struggling to read?
Did they miss months of essential learning due to COVID-19? 
Are they receiving the quality support they need at school?

 

Many children struggle to read and often end up falling behind, but it is not their fault. As parents and educators, it is our responsibility to provide these children with intensive and systematic reading instruction. 

Brainy Bears' Back on Track Literacy Intervention can help

Our Back on Track Literacy Intervention program aims to turn struggling readers into successful readers by providing daily, intensive, and small-group instruction.

Our 30-45 minute sessions are fun and engaging. They are designed to build confidence by allowing all children to achieve success. We focus on the five fundamental building blocks of literacy: phonological awareness, fluency, phonics, vocabulary, and comprehension. 

This is an intensive program that runs between 4-5 sessions per week for 10 weeks. We keep the group sizes small in order to provide personalised explicit reading instruction to each and every child. During our initial one-on-one assessment, we aim to delve deeper into their strengths and challenges. This allows us to group children with similar needs and tailor a program that will bridge the gaps in their knowledge.

Included in this program is an initial and end of program assessment. This is important for informing teaching and tracking progress. With parent permission, we also contact your child's teacher to learn more about their current reading and writing progress and goals.

This program is suitable for:

  • Children from Prep-Year 4

  • Children significantly behind in their learning

  • English as a second language learners 

  • Children with learning needs such as dyslexia or dysgraphia 

Group size: 3-5 children

 

Lesson frequency: 4-5 sessions per week 

 

Lesson duration: 30 - 45 minutes (depending on the age and needs of the children)

 

Total program duration:  40-50 sessions

 

Price: $35 per session
