Reading Matters’ services really work. They improve reading for children and young people; enhancing reading comprehension, word recognition, language development, communication skills, confidence and self-esteem.
“I am really impressed with the quality of the training and support provided by Reading Matters. Our Reading Leaders have found that they are benefitting from the work alongside their partners. It is helping with self confidence and self esteem and the students are thriving on the responsibility that the role requires.”
