Technically, reading is the process of gaining meaning from print.

For some, reading is a passion - an avenue to which they can turn, to escape the challenges of life - a place where their most terrific fantasies can come true.

For others, it's a tedious chore, where nothing makes sense and even reading a small sentence requires a mammoth effort.

The reasons for children not being able to read are varied - poor teaching, lack of motivation or the child may have a learning disability which makes reading difficult.  In these pages we hope to share with you some of our more 'child friendly' ways of improving the reading experience for your child.
