What teachers are saying about Literacy Gold
“The Literacy Gold package is the single most important and effective program we run at school”
Down Hall Primary School
“I have never found another program that replicates what we would do in a specialist 1:1 intervention. This does. It's fun but very targeted.”
St Mary's School
“Literacy Gold is like nothing I have used before and has shown vast improvements with a variety of age groups. With some children the age gap had hugely reduced, one child by 62 months in only two terms. Quite amazing!”
Alsager Highfields Community Primary School
Why do Some Children Struggle To Read?
Some children can't see the letters and words on the page clearly, and they can't hear the individual sounds in words
This is why phonics by itself doesn't work for some children.
Pupils who skip words or lines, reverse letters, or can't remember what they've read, may have a vision problem caused by weak eye muscles. Their eyes don't focus on the same letter, so their brain receives two different images when they read.
They may also have poor phonological awareness, which means they can't hear individual sounds in words. They can't hear that goat contains 3 sounds: g-oa-t.
Literacy Gold's Reading Bundle addresses both these issues using fun games. Engaging Eyes, exercises the eye muscles, helping them work together and reduces eye movements. Fluency Builder develops auditory skills so they can hear the sounds in words. Once children can both see the letters and sound out the words, reading improves dramatically.
