Davis Reading Program for Young learners
Providing important tools to beginning readers through the unique partnership philosophy of the young readers program. A program where parents or other family members gain the skills needed to provide the child with ongoing quality support.
The Best Start
Strong research evidence suggests that children who are exposed to Davis methods at pre-reading or primary level (age 5-7) benefit in the following ways:
Our aims are
- to provide lifelong learning skills to younger children through a partnership between Facilitator, child and parent
- to give one or both of the child's parent, or a support person, sufficient confidence and skill to continue working with the Davis Young Learner's Kit after the program
- to provide children with the conceptual skills needed to develop reading fluency and comprehension.
The Davis Reading Program for Young Learners provides important tools to beginning readers. Through the unique partnership philosophy of the program, parents or other family members gain the skills needed to provide the child with ongoing quality support. Typically, the Facilitator will schedule 25-30 hours of time with the student; at least half or more of the program time will also include the parent or support person participating in helping the child with the new skills and techniques.
As part of the program, students will always receive the Davis Young Learner Kit for Home Use, to be used at home to follow up with the program.
