Engaging Early Readers of all Ages and Abilities
Illume Reading is a suite of resources that are used to engage early readers of all ages and abilities. Is your student struggling to remember their sight words? Do they need more practice to learn their phonics sounds? Do they experience difficulty with reading comprehension? Illume Reading is for you!
Designed initially to meet the needs of students with intellectual disability, the engaging resources and hands-on, visual approaches, are now being used by a wide range of students of all ages and abilities.
We believe that every student has the ability to learn to read. Sometimes, however, traditional programs and approaches do not meet the needs of our learners.
Illume Reading combines multiple approaches (whole word, phonics and text immersion) and techniques (visual, auditory and tactile-kinaesthetic) to maximise student learning.
The resources are designed specifically for your student, progressing to the next stage only when they are ready and incorporating their interests to ensure maximum engagement and enjoyment.
Illume Reading is not a prescriptive reading program, but rather a suite of resources designed to engage and motivate your student and to help them succeed in reading. The flexibility of the resources also allows for them to be used alongside other programs currently being implemented in your school.
