Find out more about the reading process and how we can support young readers as they get to grips with written language. Explore the many benefits of reading to support personal as well as academic development
This self-study pack is designed for anyone who is interested in supporting young readers, either at home or in a school/child care setting. We will consider a range of strategies for promoting a love of reading and for supporting children as they grapple with the challenges associated with learning to read.

This self-study pack is also suitable for anyone who is interested in reading and/or children’s literature more broadly. We will explore the complexity of reading and the different skills that children need to acquire in order to become confident readers. We will also look at how books can be used to support language development as well as to develop children’s empathy and wellbeing.
