Common Causes of Reading Difficulties
A child or adult may have ‘reading difficulties’ due to a number of different reasons.
Some common causes of reading difficulties include:
Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Auditory processing disorder (APD)
Special Educational Needs (SEN)
Toe By Toe supports any child or adult who has difficulty in decoding (reading unfamiliar words confidently and accurately) or reading fluently (reading without pausing or hesitating when confronted by an unfamiliar word).
Toe By Toe has helped school children with a below average reading age to not only recover those ‘lost years’, but leap to the ‘top of their class.’
Children previously classified by their schools as ‘dyslexic’ or as having ‘Special Educational Needs’ have been re-classified after successfully completing Toe By Toe.
It has helped children and adults with ADHD or ADD to improve their reading where previously they had struggled.
Toe By Toe has been successfully used in UK prisons, helping thousands of illiterate prisoners learn how to read.
People with autism or dyspraxia have also been helped by Toe By Toe.
Toe By Toe has also successfully helped both children and adults for who English is not their first language.
