The group is aimed at children between the ages of 5-14 who are experiencing difficulties with reading, writing and spelling.
Prep For Prep

The group covers story retell/sequencing skills, pencil coordination, letters, numbers, colours, and plenty more. The group is designed for children who are approaching Prep and would benefit from some extra guidance.
Way to Write
Way to Write is designed for children who are already able to recognise and form the letters of the alphabet, however are having some difficulty with appropriate use of lines, pressure, spacing, legibility and fine motor skills. The program will focus on developing these skills, as well as one’s awareness of their body in space, and how this influences their ability to engage in this activity.
