Specialist Literacy Tuition

Multisensory Phonics Programme for Reading and Spelling

This is suitable for any pupil with dyslexic type tendencies. The sessions follow the Hickey Multisensory Language Course which is a multisensory, structured, cumulative and phonically based program. As a specialist dyslexia program it meets the evidence- based criteria.  An informal assessment will identify where the pupil needs to start. For more information read my BLOG on Dyslexia Interventions.

Specialist sessions involve several varied activities, allowing a suitable pace to be maintained. Activities,  are designed to be motivating to engage and enthuse pupils. 

Reading & Spelling Programme 

through learning English Morphology

To become confident readers and spellers in English, you need to develop both phonological (sounds) and morphological knowledge (word meaning). 

In the early stages of reading, phonics is taught. For children with dyslexia, they can struggle to progress further with reading and spelling multisyllabic words (more than one syllable). 

 Morph Mastery, a morphological intervention programme, uses multisensory, cumulative and overlearning activities to learn English morphology. Research is increasingly showing that a morphological approach is particularly helpful for those that are having difficulties. 

A short assessment will inform where a pupil has gaps in their knowledge. A variety of activities  are used to add interest and maintain motivation.
