LITERACY

Reading and writing (literacy)

At ClearConvo, we offer several evidence-based literacy programs. We can provide you with a customised, evidence-based program to support the reading and writing needs of your loved one.

Learning to read and write is a crucial part of a child's development. As adults, reading and writing (literacy) are essential skills for everyday life. Being literate means that people can understand and follow written instructions, find information (online or in books), write letters and emails and send text messages.

Can literacy intervention be done online?

All of our speech therapy interventions are suitable to be delivered both online and in person.
