Davis® Reading Programme for Young Learners
The Davis Reading Programme for Young Learners is an individualised learning enhancement programme with a licensed and trained Davis Facilitator. It aims to give children aged 5-7 the best possible start at the outset of their learning career. Its aims are:
- to provide lifelong learning skills to younger children through a partnership between Facilitator, child and parent(s).
- to give one or both of the child’s parents, or a support person, sufficient confidence and skill to continue working with the Davis Young Learner’s Kit after the Programme.
- to provide children with the conceptual skills needed to develop reading fluency and comprehension.
The Davis Reading Programme for Young Learners provides important tools to children who are beginning to read. Through the unique partnership philosophy of the programme, parents or other support individuals 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 and parent, with daily sessions of no more than three hours. 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.
