Literacy interventions can vary depending upon the needs of the individual involved. Oftentimes, the specialist will already have an assessment report and so will know which areas of literacy to focus on during the intervention. A literacy intervention can involve the child or young person discovering which strategies are useful for supporting their progress in literacy. For example, the individual may benefit from a phonics intervention, which helps with sounding out words.
After a literacy intervention the individual will often be prepared with effective strategies for maximising their potential in literacy. Following a literacy intervention, follow up sessions may be recommended if the child or young person begins to fall behind in literacy. Outcomes following a literacy intervention can be provided via a written report or verbally if preferred.
We will always recommend a report to you following an intervention, which will include what took place during intervention, the effect of the intervention and recommendations for the future. The report from a literacy intervention can be used for many reasons. Reasons for requesting a literacy intervention differ, and if a written report is not something you are interested in then feedback can be given verbally with a short summary.
