Program Overview

A new frontier in Learning

  The Reading Switch has re-imagined the way children with dyslexia learn to read with phonics, so that it plays to the strengths associated with this thinking and learning style whilst supporting the inherent weaknesses. The Reading Switch taps into the power of the visual memory through the use of our intuitive visual phonics system. The program is carefully sequenced and purposely presented to harness dyslexic strengths such as big picture thinking, visual memory and pattern detection skills.

The program is suitable for all primary school aged children who fall below the expected reading standard for their year level.

Gaps in learning may begin to appear when a child reaches Year 2 (although difficulties may be evident toward the end of Year 1). The earlier difficulties in reading are detected and acted upon, the better it is for the young learner’s well-being and academic progress however there are still some children who have silently fallen below expected reading levels.

Prior to commencing the program, children must be already familiar with the letters of the alphabet, able to identify each letter by sight, and have knowledge of the basic sound each letter can make.
