We are delighted to have seen recent changes and positive future initiatives to literacy, education and helping students with dyslexia; namely:
- The trial and eventual implementation of the Year 1 phonics screen by State Education Minister, Hon. Susan Close.
- The recent updated and fair SACE guidelines for granting special provisions for students with learning difficulties.
- The proposed Literacy Guarantee Policy from State Opposition Leader, Hon. Steven Marshall.
It was wonderful to celebrate these successes with all our volunteers. These achievements keep us motivated to advocate for change in the teaching of literacy for all in SA!
