Spelling + Reading + Writing = Literacy



Schools know how to teach literacy – otherwise none of us would be able to read and write.  Most children learn literacy without too much fuss, even kids of modest intelligence.  So when a child is struggling, or failing, there is something wrong.



The most important thing about a literacy intervention is that it’s effective – in the long term – so that children can explore and express their ideas at a level that matches their general intelligence, knowledge and creativity – for life.



Confidence comes with competence.  Kids know when they are good at something, and when they’re not.  You can’t give a child confidence, but children can be taught so that they become competent.



The awful truth is, 20% of New Zealand children leave school without their basic literacy and numeracy – some of them bright kids.
