Rhythm for Reading is a group reading intervention programme for 5 to 15 year olds that uniquely doesn't use words!

After only 10 weekly sessions of 10 minutes students achieve a 20 month average gain in reading comprehension by building attention and focus through rhythm.

Many students, particularly those with English as an additional language have gained up to 48 months in reading comprehension age in the same amount of time.

This rhythm-based approach has been researched in a five year study at UCL Institute of Education.

The Rhythm for Reading programme streams a system of resources into classrooms via a secure portal, enabling teachers to accelerate students’ phonological processing, reading accuracy, fluency, engagement and comprehension.

By dramatically improving students' interest and ability to assimilate the content of what they are reading, Rhythm for Reading acts as a powerful catalyst for the acquisition of knowledge.
