Reading Matters’ Impact for 2013/14
Last year we supported over 4600 children and young people and their performance in reading improved in over 95% of cases. We trained over 900 individuals to offer reading support. Our impact report can be accessed here: Reading Matters Impact Report 2013_14
‘I now know it’s ok to self correct, and I’m good at reading out loud’, ‘My grades and my spelling have really improved’, ‘I feel much more confident’.
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.”
