Teach reading with Phonics

“It has transformed my life…” Chris, young adult

Yes Can Read is an award-winning one-to-one phonics based reading programme for learners from age 8 to mature adult.

The programme will guide you through the whole process of teaching someone to read – from teaching individual phonic sounds, to blending sounds, building words and sentences… and on to reading fluency for the learner. This is a fun and engaging way to learn for anyone who has struggled to read, building confidence and self-esteem in both the learner and the coach.

Yes We Can Read is successfully used in a wide range of contexts, including Prisons, Homeless Hostels, PRUs’, SEN, Schools, Colleges and Community Education.

“I am reading at long last… I’m proving to myself each day that I can do it. Now I have something to look forward to.” Robert, mature adult
