Education and Literacy Care

Literacy Care operates within the wider service environment of the Child Development Network. This allows for a highly collaborative and multidisciplinary approach to managing developmental and learning problems and learning differences relative to literacy.

Literacy Care only implements scientific and evidence based literacy interventions which research shows can not only up-skill a child but can impact on the very neurological reason for their difficulty. Learning differences do not need to be ‘cured’ but they do need to be effectively managed and children with Dyslexia, and those with associated learning differences, cannot only survive but thrive.
