About Reading LINK:

Dr Carol Christensen developed this program over an extended period of research, field testing and usage in classrooms. It works when the methodology is followed on a regular basis. Results can be startling if the simple method is followed!

Reading LINK is a systematic and careful approach to teaching reading and spelling. It is designed to build fluency in reading which is then applied to writing and spelling! It is a very carefully sequenced approach to teaching reading where the student builds on their previous lesson. Each lesson follows the same process and can be completed within 10-15 minutes with a concentrated effort! Reading LINK is used by parents and teachers across Australia with an estimated usage of over 60,000 students!

The distinctive approach to the teaching of reading significantly accelerates early reading skills. It is also extremely successful with special needs such as dyslexia! Dr Christensen argues that all students can master the challenge to read and write when they are instructed in a careful and methodical approach as provided by Reading LINK.
