Who is it for?
Wide range of difficulties
The Turnabout Programme is applicable to pupils who have the range of difficulties associated with dyslexia. For some the condition is severe and they have failed to learn to read. These pupils cannot recognise or remember many letters or words nor can they remember the main spelling rules.
Hard to move pupils
Turnabout is also very suitable for the greater number of children typically classified by schools as ‘hard to move’. Some have learned to read albeit later than others but cannot write properly and cannot remember spelling rules. Some pupils can spell verbally but are unable to write the word down accurately.
Turnabout is suitable for secondary school students and primary school pupils from Year 2 upwards
The Turnabout Programme is also directly beneficial for children with concentration and behavioural issues associated with Attention Deficit disorders.
About - the Turnabout Programme
Before I was not good at anything. I was always getting my tables wrong in maths. I’m much better with my homework now and I’m kind of liking it.
Remembering better - when told something at night by mum and dad I can now remember in the morning instead of having to get up early and ask what it was. Now remember to get up and feed the cats on a Sunday.
I have started to read books at home.. Reading Harry Potter and now on third book . Didn’t read own books before, just the school reading books. Now recognise words rather than having to work them all out. Spelling has improved so can read better and recognise the words.
