Reading Intervention for the Struggling Reader

Who is it for

Primary school teachers, SENCOs, Literacy leaders

Brief synopsis of workshop:

Have you got learners in your class you can decode but their comprehension is low and their understanding of vocabulary is weak?

Focusing on those learners who have transitioned from the mechanics of reading into skills-based reading but who may have gaps and lag behind their peers, this very practical workshop will provide you with techniques and strategies that support and equip the developing reader move forward and make progress.

Using a range of reading and thinking skills, your learners will understand and engage with text more deeply and apply these skills in a way that encourages independent learning.

Suitable to use in whole class reading sessions, as well as smaller reading intervention groups, this is a must for all those who want all in their class to become confident and happy readers.

What you will get out of it:

A structured approach to support and encourage the developing reader.
