Yes We Can Read is a unique one-to-one reading tool for learners aged from 8 to 80. Yes We Can Read is a phonics-based programme to develop reading for meaning. You, the coach, will be guided through the whole process - from teaching individual phonic sounds, to blending sounds, building words and sentences... and on to reading fluency. This is a fun and engaging way to learn, for anyone who has struggled to read. It builds confidence and self-esteem in both coach and learner.
We must all learn to read first, before we can all access the life-changing opportunities and experiences that reading brings.

"I am 61 and I am reading at long last... I’m proving to myself each day that I can do it. Now I have something to look forward to." Robert, Gosport
No teaching experience required - Anyone who can read fluently can teach a non or poor reader to read in six months or less. No training or other qualifications are required. One to one is the key!
Just pick up and go! - As soon as the coach has read 2 pages of clear and simple guidance, the learner can start the journey to become a fluent reader of English.
Dyslexia support - With its unique photo-alphabet, well-spaced text and easy-to-read font, this programme is ideal for learners with Dyslexia.
Who will you teach to read? - If you can read and have some spare time and a willing learner, then you can give the life-long gift of reading to your child, or a friend, a relative, a workmate, your neighbour - to anyone! The two of you just need the Yes We Can Read tool and a couple of hours a week for a few months.
