Event Details

When children struggle to learn how to read, perhaps we need to look at how they are being instructed. Reading is a scientific process and requires a very complex set of connections. In order to create these connections, we need a very specific structure to how the skills for reading are learned.

In this 3 hour workshop, we will investigate the processes and the methodologies for reading instruction, that are evidence based and most successful in teaching all children to read.


About the Presenter:

For over 30 years, Leslie Keast-Patch worked as a teacher, a learning support teacher and music specialist in schools, before specialising in literacy and dyslexia.

Leslie saw the frustration and concerns that parents and teachers endure when their intelligent and eager students continue to struggle to acquire literacy skills after several years of schooling, and more importantly the damage to self esteem and tragic waste of potential of so many children. Through her research, experience and work with students of all ages and abilities, it was clear there was a need to create alternative learning programs and educational workshops to provide opportunities for literacy learning.
