Prevent spelling and reading problems before they happen.
Available in Australia only.
Supporting your preschooler’s language development will provide them with the best possible start to reading, and their future educational journey.
There are 44 sounds of the English language which help distinguish letters, words and meaning. You can view the 44 sounds here.
Children who struggle to hear the difference will have trouble matching sounds to letters causing spelling and reading problems. They may also find it difficult to follow instructions, pay attention and learn new words, resulting in them falling behind and losing confidence socially and academically.
Ready to Read is a one-month online program, completed in the comfort of your own home together with your child. Designed to strengthen their English language skills and provide them with the best possible start to reading. It is evidence-based and used by speech pathologists worldwide.
