"My child is struggling to learn to read and spell at school with synthetic phonics. They do not equate reading with anything positive, and it's affecting their attitude towards learning. What can I do at home to teach them to read and spell myself?"
After paying you will be asked to video a few simple activities, to assess phonemic awareness among other skills. You will be sent the necessary hand copy resources after Miss Emma has watched the clip/s. A date will be booked (within 2 weeks of payment) for the Getting Started Session. How many follow ups depends on a range of factors, but one is usually recommended a week after the Getting Started session, and then at 3 week intervals.
Most families have 'cracked it' within 1 'Getting Started' and 4 'Follow-up sessions.
Ortho-Graphix Tech makes 'the spelling code' visible and easier to crack!
Does your child grasp the 'grapheme to phoneme' conversion in English reading? This is vital for reading fluency and understanding. Various factors, unrelated to intelligence, can make this challenging. Miss Emma identifies these challenges and provides targeted tools and resources. She offers books with visual sound mappings (graphemes) and an upcoming technology that allows kids to visualise/ identify graphemes and hear phonemes in regular text by simply clicking on words. This self-help method fosters orthographic knowledge without external assistance. With Ortho-Graphix, children receive timely word mapping support.
