What Works for Children and Young People with Literacy Difficulties?
The latest edition of Greg Brooks’s review of intervention schemes for children and young people with literacy difficulties is out. (See Greg’s assessment of That Reading Thing here.)
That Reading Thing is now included in the Key Stage 3 section with a note that it’s still very appropriate for young people 14 plus and outside the system. I’d like to add that it’s still very much aimed at that older age group but has also found a place inside the school system in the 11-14 age range.
It’s currently being delivered by teachers, learning support assistants, youth workers and community volunteers. All that’s required is excellent literacy and a curiosity about how the language works for reading and spelling.
