Welcome to That Reading Thing - Literacy for Teens & Adults


That Reading Thing exists because young people and adults who struggle with reading and spelling need a dignified and age-appropriate literacy intervention 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 and the Youth Justice Board's Resource Hub.
  • TRT is being used in schools, colleges and youth offending services all over the UK and Australia.
  • We especially love the work we've done with small and large youth organisations and charities as well as many individuals who just want to make a difference where they are.
