SPELD SA Literacy Clinic The SPELD SA literacy clinic provides students struggling to develop appropriate reading (decoding), spelling (encoding) and writing skills with effective, high-quality support using the Sounds~Write program. It is run by qualified specialist teachers trained in the Sounds Write program. Clinic sessions are attended in small groups of up to 3 students. The clinic is closed during school holidays. Many students will choose to have a face-to-face tutor when they graduate from the Literacy Clinic. SPELD SA Face to Face tutoring Over the years SPELD SA registered tutors have played a vital role in assisting children and adults with specific learning difficulties, such as dyslexia. A good teacher, using specialised teaching methods, can make a significant impact on a student’s success and self-confidence. Tutors on the SPELD SA register have current SA teacher registration and a minimum of two years’ classroom experience. In addition, they have received specialist training through SPELD SA in the teaching of children and adults with specific learning difficulties. SPELD SA Online tutoring For people who live in the outback, interstate or an area where there are no local tutors, SPELD SA offers online tutoring. Online tutoring takes place in real-time between a tutor and an individual student. Online tutoring can be provided to students from 7 years of age.
