Tricia Millar - Youth Literacy Expert


I created That Reading Thing because young people and adults who struggle with reading and spelling need dignified and age-appropriate literacy that builds skills, knowledge and confidence in hours rather than years.

  • Inside or outside the education system, even the most reluctant learners make gains in the first few lessons.
  • TRT has been evaluated by Professor Greg Brooks, is in the most recent edition of "What works for children & young people with literacy difficulties" and is recommended by the Dyslexia SpLD Trust.
  • I've worked with small and large youth organisations, schools, colleges, youth offending services and national charities including the Salvation Army and the National Literacy Trust as well as many individuals who just want to make a difference where they are.
