The TRT Method

You won't find a better reading method for teens and adults. TRT is fun but satisfying, challenging but safe and fast. It is evidence-based and externally assessed by Professor Greg Brooks. Students work from sound to print using age-appropriate vocabulary and authentic reading material. The method is rooted in linguistic phonics but has grown its own way of working with older learners for the fastest possible results.

Delivering the Method

TRT requires about 1 hour per week one-to-one for 6-12 hours. After that, when confidence has increased, small group work is an option. Add in spelling and writing to complement reading practice. Some will need one-to-one for longer, especially those who are still embarrassed to read in front of peers. That Reading Thing flexes with the needs of all learners and settings and is delivered by both experts and novices with great results.
