Who is Toe by Toe Designed For?
Toe By Toe supports any child or adult who has difficulty in decoding (reading unfamiliar words confidently and accurately) or reading fluently (reading without pausing or hesitating when confronted by an unfamiliar word).
It is our recommendation that the minimum age for a child to start Toe By Toe would be: 7+ years of age. In the UK then the optimum age to begin Toe By Toe (if it is delivered in school time) would be the start of year 3 (or 2nd Grade for the USA).
However, for children without any significant reading difficulties Toe By Toe can be used effectively at a younger age, even from the age of 5. If for example you want to support or accelerate progress or give children the best start in learning the English language, Toe By Toe is an ideal tool.
Furthermore, we have seen many cases of children who have started Toe By Toe in year 6 (11 years of age in the UK) who have then consequently met their end of year curriculum targets.
Children, teenagers, adults or senior citizens can all access and benefit from the Toe By Toe programme.
Is Toe By Toe only suitable for people affected with dyslexia?
What ever the nature of the reading difficulty Toe By Toe will help. If a child or adult has difficulty decoding words and reading fluently Toe By Toe will address this and help to make significant improvements.
