Fresh Start for Catch-up Readers

Read Write Inc. Fresh Start is a catch-up and intervention programme, with proven results, for 9–13 year olds still learning to read. It offers a simple but powerful solution to accelerate children’s reading progress in just 25 minutes a day. 

Developed by Ruth Miskin, it teaches children at their challenge point, so they learn to read accurately and fluently. They will also develop good comprehension, spelling and punctuation skills through targeted activities. 

Resources are age-appropriate, matched to children’s increasing knowledge of phonics, and finely levelled to accelerate progress. 

High-quality training, provided by Ruth Miskin Training, supports teachers, teaching assistants or tutors to deliver Fresh Start in a primary- or secondary-school setting
