This programme takes children right back to the basics of Afrikaans and is an intensive intervention programme. A FREE assessment is conducted to determine if this programme is appropriate for your child.

Children who struggle with reading are disadvantaged at school and in life. Reading difficulties are common in children, but with proper attention these difficulties can usually be identified and corrected. The qualified tutors at Kip McGrath understand that reading difficulties are sensitive and potentially embarrassing for children and parents. At our centres, all students are treated with respect and understanding. A positive learning environment makes achievement natural and fun.
