Reading Unleased is a face-to-face service that provides specialist literacy instruction in the Canberra Region, to children aged 6+ years. Reading Unleashed focuses on unlocking the reading code for children. Reading Unleashed is for the differently abled. It is for those who are struggling with reading and who may have specific learning difficulties in Reading, Spelling or Writing, such as Dyslexia, Language Disorders, etc… .

Reading Unleashed aims to build your child's confidence by strengthening their skills through targeted teaching, which enables them to access the whole school curriculum and fully participate in their learning. This is achieved by understanding each child's specific capability and delivering targeted instruction that meet them at their point of need. The tailored one-to-one sessions with a literacy expert build their literacy skills and grow in confidence.

Reading Unleashed believes that each child is an individual, is unique and can learn. We use evidence and research-based approaches and strategies to implement high quality practice to assist each child's specific needs. Our practice is explicit, systematic, cumulative and structured.

Building a positive environment with each child is also at the heart of sessions. Our engaging and multi-sensory approach allows positive relationships to grow, encouraging trust and building self-esteem.

Reading Unleashed also provides consultation services to schools and individuals. We can deliver professional development and coaching for schools or individuals.
