Rotherham Enhanced Action for Dyslexia (READ)

READ is a service within the Specialist Inclusion Team that offer an outreach provision to support children and young people with dyslexia. The outreach provision is aimed at supporting those individuals with severe and persistent literacy difficulties. They will have previously received intensive and appropriate support within school; despite this they continue to struggle to make progress which is impacting on their self-esteem and access to learning.

It is available to children in Year 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9:

  • in maintained schools or academies as part of a graduated response
  • who have an Education, Health and Care Plan as part of their provision
  • are in Alternative Provision or Special School

We are a traded service and packages of support can be purchased through Trade Rotherham following a referral process. Referral panels take place once a term.
