Assessments for Struggling Readers with Miss Emma
The Reading Whisperer®

The Reading Hut

Is your child (or teen) struggling to read and spell with independence and confidence?
Request a Face to Face (UK) or Online Evaluation with Miss Emma, The Reading Whisperer.
Watch the videos below, showing 'Duck Hands'. Miss Emma will start by asking your child to Duck Hand words, while you video them. You send those videos which are used to ascertain if there are underlying phonemic awareness issues. After watching the videos Miss Emma asks you to undertake more activities, and this continues until she has figured out what is blocking your child from learning to read and spell easily. No assessment is the same, because no two children are the same; NO STANDARDISED TESTS ARE USED.
Why not? Miss Emma is not only getting to know your child but also YOU - so that she can best help you BOTH; this is a personal evaluation.
Miss Emma will quickly get to the bottom of why your child has struggled and will tell you WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT. The videos are put together into a video that you can then share with their teacher, and they are invited to contact Miss Emma directly with any questions and to find out how they can best help your child at school. Most teachers, unfortunately, are not trained to understand and address reading and spelling difficulties.  
You will be invited to the BOT (Back on Track) Group for 4 weeks, for 1;1 support, and also asked to join the Orthographic Mapping support group, where you will be shown a wide range of activities and techniques to incorporate into your daily lives. The goal is to not only help your child learn to read and spell with confidence but to LOVE reading and spelling and to CHOOSE to read for pleasure.   

Face to Face Assessments with The Reading Whisperer in Dorset start again soon.

Miss Emma will share tips to help you guide students towards 'orthographic mapping' - join the free support group!

If Miss Emma has assessed your child online you can ask to be added to her private BOT group (Back on Track) - for 4 weeks - this is ONLY for parents so that everyone in there is in the same boat. Parents can keep adding videos of their child, and Miss Emma offers suggestions - the video thread also enables parents to see 'how far travelled' since session 1. Miss Emma is teaching parents so that they can best support their child.
