The Reading Doctor makes reading simple

What is The Reading Doctor?

The Reading Doctor is a bespoke one to one intervention programme, devised by Reading Recovery trained teacher, Deborah Salsbury, for children who are having difficulties getting to grips with reading. 

The Reading Doctor methods are proven to raise attainment for 100% of pupils and help children with diagnosed conditions such as dyslexia, or other barriers to reading fluency, to develop strategies alongside a positive attitude to reading, enabling to them to become successful readers.

The Reading Doctor delivers a personalised programme, that identifies and builds on strengths and overcomes difficulties. The Reading Doctor methods go deeper than phonics teaching and utilise multi-sensory methods to ensure each pupil learns to read both for pleasure and to become functionally literate.

The school employs a ´Reading Doctor´ who works with all pupils with a reading age of less than eight. This intervention has been extremely positive and over the last nine months, on average, these pupils´reading ages have improved by nearly two years.
