Professional Reading

Case Study – Bellbrae Primary School, Vic.

Bellbrae Primary School, located in rural Victoria about 100 kilometres from Melbourne, knew something had to change.

Between 2008 and 2011, Bellbrae Yr 3 Spelling NAPLAN results were considerably below those in schools serving students from statistically similar backgrounds. The teaching staff of the school recognised these poor NAPLAN results meant one thing - they had to focus on spelling.

Speech Pathology and Sound Waves

Every year, hundreds of children who have difficulty reading and spelling are referred to speech pathologists. Students are falling behind because they are being taught a traditional and difficult way to read and spell.
