We have LIFT off in Reading!

18/02/2014
LIFT is an intervention program targeting readers at all levels.  It is an evidence-based program informed by research findings on reading, neuroscience, pedagogy and identity.  It combines strategies for creating and sustaining a supportive, stimulating learning envirnoment with explicit methods for helping children to develop their reading skills.  LIFT is founded on a philosophical base that advocates emotional warmth in teaching, a focus on positives, a belief that all children can improve, and an understanding that all children can present themselves as willing and cooperative learners if strategically and empathetically managed. Doctor Ian Burgess has been based at our Regional Office developing this explicit reading program called LIFT for the past 4 years.  This year we are lucky enough to have Dr. Burgess based at Coomera Springs to facilitate our proram.  Get ready for LIFT off!
