Paired Reading – Peer and Adult

Paired reading is a very effective, evidence-based method of helping children progress in their reading.  It is like a child learning to ride a bike.  In the early stages you give the child encouragement, confidence and control, by holding the bicycle.  Your own instinct will tell you when to let go.  So you can gradually disengage for longer periods until your child is able to ride without help.  The same applies to Paired Reading.  It is an ideal way of helping your child to become an independent reader. It works on building up the positives and successes rather than concentrating on mistakes.
