 This has been thoroughly enlightening and has now allowed me to explore other avenues of support and advice for both the children I support and their parents. It has greatly developed my understanding of a variety of factors and as I read the course materials found I could relate so many of the difficulties and strategies to the children I teach.

I found the overlays a very good resource to support children and I have noticed an improvement in both the fluency and speed as a result of using them. The coloured reading rulers are also a great resource to support children reading a text as it guides them and allows them to follow exactly where they should be by highlighting the line they are on.
