Literacy Intervention

Our literacy intervention strategy is firmly grounded in evidence-based practices and informed by the latest research in the Science of Reading. Through a structured literacy model, we address key components of reading and writing to provide effective support for all learners, including those with dyslexia or other learning differences.
