Literacy Support

New Day Learning & Therapy Clinic highly values the importance of literacy in a learners life. We offer extra support to students to gain valuable skills. We offer a wide range of multi sensory programs to assists both learners who have developmental reading disabilities. These can include phonological deficit, processing speed deficit and/or a comprehension deficit. Often times students with special educational needs have reading difficulties and need assistance in decoding, phonemic awareness, phonological awareness and comprehension. 

A Literacy Specialist supports, supplements and extends classroom teaching, and works collaboratively to implement a quality reading program that is research-based and meets the needs of students.

Our Literacy Specialists has specialized knowledge of assessments to create a baseline in which to begin building skills. This is vital for developing, implementing and designing instruction for individual students. Individualized support starts in the therapy room and then provided to classroom teachers, parents, other therapists  to provide an effective reading program. 

Literacy is more than just reading and writing. We develop the abilities of students to read, write, communicate and think. These are all crucial components to literacy. Literacy is a foundational component to all learning and therefore, opportunities to develop literacy skills needs to be embedded in every area within the school environment.  

Children will learn best when given an appropriate multisensory learning diet. This will lead to accurate and memorable use of phonics and sight words. Determining the most successful learning style can dramatically accelerate the acquisition of phonics. This assertion is backed up by an increasing weight of research. We believe in the multisensory approach experience for the learner, providing the platform for all children to succeed. Multi-sensory teaching naturally employs as many learning types as possible (visual, auditory, tactile, kinesthetic).


Our approach has been designed to include teaching elements such as:
• visual,
• auditory,
• tactile and
• kinesthetic


Our multi-sensory teaching takes place in 6 key activities:
• writing
• building
• songs
• stories
• games
• technology

The ratio of activities will vary with age and ability, focusing on areas where most support is required.
