READING & WRITING PROGRAMS

  • Is your child having trouble learning how to read or spell?

  • Are nightly school readers a nightmare?

  • Do you need some help organising your child's literacy work at home?

The Helipad is here to help! Our reading and writing programs are suitable for every child, because our  programs are individualised based on your child’s needs. All of our programs have been carefully designed by combining our speech pathology knowledge with the principles of how children learn.

We work with children who have:

  • Decoding difficulties (eg. trouble identifying sounds or sounding out words)
  • Reading comprehension difficulties
  • Dyslexia or dysgraphia
  • Spelling difficulties
  • Trouble thinking of what to write
  • Trouble with grammar, punctuation or forming sentences

You may also be eligible to receive a Medicare rebate of $53.80 for 5x speech pathology sessions if you have a referral from your GP.
