Hands-On

 

All students learn in different ways. We create opportunities for hands-on learning at Readers Rescue to provide another way for students to grasp difficult concepts. 

 

 

Brain Gym and Eye Exercises 

 
  •  We offer Brain Gym, which consists of quick, fun and energising body movements designed to get the two hemispheres of the brain to work together.

  •  The program provides sensory-motor activities, as there is a strong link between immature motor skills and comprehension difficulties.

  •  Play based activities to build children’s core muscle, improve attention and focus, and enhance the learning process.

  • Eye Exercises to enhance the ability to control where we aim our eyes - Signs of eye tracking problems in school ​include frequent loss of place, skipping or "moving" words, skipping entire lines, using a finger to follow print, moving the head rather than just the eyes, and poor comprehension because of scrambled text.

  ABOUT US  

Readers Rescue has been established by a dedicated team of Australian educators who recognise the vital importance reading plays in empowering children to achieve success at school, and beyond. We understand that reading is a complex brain activity, a lot can go wrong as children develop into readers. At Readers Rescue, we have an in-depth understanding of the reading process which stems from years of experience teaching reading in the classroom. A proficient reader puts 20% effort into decoding words and 80% into comprehension. With a struggling reader, this is reversed, which explains why children with reading difficulties lack understanding of texts they read, and end up frustrated with the reading process. The team at Readers Rescue use their professional knowledge to assess and identify which fundamental reading skills a child may be struggling with, and create a reading program tailored towards each child’s individual reading needs. Our nurturing team provide children with strategies that will help them cope with challenges in a positive way, and set them on a path to enjoy reading. 

 

Research has shown that if a child is not reading grade-appropriate materials by the time he or she is in year 4, the odds of that child ever developing good reading skills are very slim.  It is till possible  but it is much more difficult, and the child's own motivation becomes the biggest obstacle to success. 

 

Our aim is to keep our prices as low as possible to ensure all students have the opportunity to improve their reading and comprehension skills. Please note that these prices can vary slightly depending on the centre or number of students for family discounts. All students need to be assessed to determine their reading level and skills. 

 

The costs are as follow:

  • $60 per individual for a 45 minute assessment and enrolment 

  • $40 per individual per 75 minute session
