Ready for Reading

Suitable for children transitioning to primary school

The beginning of a new year marks the start of a new chapter for many children and families as they enter the school environment and commence Prep or Foundation.

Give your child the best start by strengthening their pre-reading skills in this one week holiday program, which will help them learn how to turn speech sounds into letters for reading and writing.

The program includes:

  • 4 day program (Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri – with a break on Wednesday)
  • 60 minute daily sessions
  • 15 minute parent coaching sessions each day
  • Facilitation by two experienced Speech Pathologists with extensive training in literacy development


Pre-program assessment:

  • Children joining us at the Practice for the first time will require a pre-program assessment session of 60 minutes so that our Speech Pathologists can best understand your child’s development.
  • Current clients will also require a pre-program assessment, which can be incorporated into one of your child’s upcoming therapy sessions. Speak to your Speech Pathologist for more information about arranging this session.
