Webinar 3 – How to Spot a Child at Risk of Falling Behind – 3.30-4.30pm

Webinar 4 – How to make your reading intervention processes fast and effective – 10-11am

Our unique and smart intervention tool All Aboard Phonics Plus pinpoints the cause of difficulty to apply the correct solution each time.

Webinar 5 – The most common cause of reading difficulty and how to fix it – 2-3pm

Have you ever noticed a child guessing or making errors with short common words even after years of phonics teaching? We have spent the past 12 years researching this issue and the best solutions to it! Don’t miss it!

Webinar 6 – The surprising visual causes of reading difficulty and how to solve them. – 3.30-4.30pm

This webinar covers one of the most common causes of reading difficulty that is rarely spoken about – it should be a real eye opener! Have you seen children skipping words or rubbing their eyes whilst they are reading? What about skipping lines of text or looking away from the book? Has anyone told you why that is?

For each of these 1 hour webinars there is a cost of £50 per All Aboard school. The cost for schools not using All Aboard Phonics is £75. To sign up for any of the webinars please email with the name of your school and which webinars you wish to join. We will then provide you with the zoom link for each of those sessions.
