Where does The Reading Spelling Toolkit take place?

The Reading Spelling Toolkit is a digital literacy program meaning everything you need is provided to you via the online members portal. The benefit of distributing this program online is that you are in charge! You and your child work through the program at any time and from anywhere in the world, given you have access to a computer, smartphone or tablet. You and your child are given the power to decide the pace you wish to proceed through the modules (recommendations are provided). All additional practise activities are available within the members portal and can be downloaded and printed if you and your child prefer hard copies.

What is the cost of Course One of The Reading Spelling Toolkit?

To purchase Course One of The Reading Spelling Toolkit, one upfront payment of $297 is required which can be paid via Mastercard, Visa or PayPal. Once payment has been approved, you get full access to the 7 modules containing over 80 educational videos, a plethora of practice activities and games to be completed at the end of each module, as well as contact with technical advisers to answer any queries. Contact with Narelle is also available to answer any questions related to the content. Further, members receive access to an exclusive Facebook group, which is a platform of encouragement and support.

The cost of one-on-one tuition with Narelle is $110 per 50 minute session at her clinic in Brisbane, excluding added costs of take-home resources. With the recommended schedule to complete The Reading Spelling Toolkit learnings in the clinic being between 7-9 weeks as well as the added cost of resources and games to practice at home, the single payment of $297 for life-long access to Course One The Reading Spelling Toolkit is an incredible saving.

I don’t have the confidence to teach my child how to read and spell on my own. Is this going to impact my child’s success using The Reading Spelling Toolkit?

Definitely not! The Reading Spelling Toolkit has been carefully crafted so you can learn, practice and implement the new skills as your child learns them, so no one is left in the dark. You do not need to be the teacher! You and your child will watch me teach the skill, we practice the skill together through a range of multi-sensory and engaging activities within the modules, and then you and your child can practise the new skill using the downloadable activities and games together or with friends and family until mastery is achieved! I guide you and your child every step of the way.

How much time do we need to commit?

It is recommended that around one week be taken to complete each module in Course One of The Reading Spelling Toolkit. To ensure you and your child are not overwhelmed and don’t become disinterested, setting aside 30 minutes a day for 5 days to complete the videos and activities is advised. However, as each child learns at a different pace and time commitments vary for families, this is simply a guideline.

It should be noted that this program is not a quick fix. The Reading Spelling Toolkit requires you and your child to be committed to the process and not skip videos and partake in the activities within the videos. The more quality and focused time you and your child invest into The Reading Spelling Toolkit, the more you’ll both get out of it.

 

What will my child’s reading and spelling knowledge look like after completing Course One of The Reading Spelling Toolkit?

By the end of Course 1, your child will be able to recognise 13 of the most common vowel sounds. In fact, as many vowel sounds can be written in more than one way, by the end of Course 1, your child will know 19 different combinations to represent these 13 sounds. They will also be able to read and write 27 consonant sounds. They will be able to read and spell single syllable words and simple sentences using various combinations of these sounds.

You may be wondering how there could be so many different combinations when there are only 26 letters in the alphabet and you’ve been taught there are only meant to be 5 vowel sounds!!! Course one of The Reading Spelling Toolkit reveals all.

What payment options are available?

We accept all Mastercard, Visa, PayPal. If you experience any issues with payment, contact us here and one of our technical advisers will be able to assist you promptly. 

I was told my child’s reading/spelling would improve if they read more. Will The Reading Spelling Toolkit just ask my child to do this?

Expecting children to read more without them having the correct ‘tools’ needed to successfully decode words often leads to tears, anger and frustration. The Reading Spelling Toolkit does not require your child to simply read but instead provides all the necessary tools (skills) for you and your child to make reading and spelling simple. The way letters and sounds are introduced in this program is unlike anything taught in the classroom and incorporates the use of multi-sensory and evidence-based practice to help your child master these skills. Whilst your child DOES need to read to an adult for at least 10 minutes a day, fun and short reading activities are provided as part of The Reading Spelling Toolkit to master the taught skills. Better yet, these passages can be turned into a game so your child won’t feel like they are just practising reading and spelling.

Why can I only purchase Course One of The Reading Spelling Toolkit?

Currently, Course One of The Reading Spelling Toolkit is the only course available. However, Course Two is currently being built for you and your child to continue building their literacy toolkit to allow them to conquer reading and spelling. Make sure you are subscribed to our mailing list to ensure you remain up to date when Course Two launches!
