Preparing for school

Is your child ready for school?

 

How well children will learn and develop and how well they will do in school depends on a number of things, including the children’s health and physical well-being, their social and emotional preparation and their language skills and general knowledge of the world.

Many young children explore literacy play on their own, with little need for encouragement from adults. Other children need the one-on-one attention of a tutor to help them make literacy discoveries such as: print is talk written down, reading books is fun and interesting, and printed words carry messages to the reader.

Widespread deficiencies ranging across language delays, cognitive, motivational and social areas can effect a child’s development and readiness for school.

 

I can provide a specialised language programme that will:

• Help a child see the connection between spoken and written words.
• Encourage a child to put her ideas on paper.
• Help the child see the connections between oral and written language.
• Help a child build the small muscles and coordination used for writing.
