Literacy expert Carla McNeil - new phonics books in schools

From Nine To Noon, 11:25 am on 8 April 2021

As the school year cranks up in earnest, some parents might be noticing their kids aren't doing so well at the basics.

Carla is the director of Learning Matters, an organisation that helps parents and teachers to support children who experience dyslexia.

She joins Kathryn to talk about how parents can support their children as they learn to read, write and spell.

She'll also talk about the new Ready to Read Phonics books that are being introduced to schools.
