The Challenge for Society
The major problem is that struggling readers will rarely admit that they can't read.
Society needs to make it clear that it is not their fault that they can't read, it is not that they lack intelligence. Everyone has the RIGHT to READ
LTR has, over the last 3.5 years developed a very comprehensive range of referral points across Ipswich, where agencies and charities come into contact with members of the public who often need help with forms and other important documents. Our referral points include:
>Housing Officers, Job Centre, 40 Early years settings, 15 schools
>HomeStart, ICENI, Suffolk Babies, Citizen's Advice Bureau
>Doctors' Surgeries via Social Prescribing
We particularly want to engage with parents of young children, so that we can help them to learn to read with their babies and infants.
