The Australian Literacy Clinic specialises in assisting children who have difficulties with reading. ALC is committed to thorough and appropriate assessment, planning and intervention strategies. We recognise the importance of Working Memory in reading and learning. Our Reading Program has been designed in accordance with research into Working Memory. We work with Psychologists, Paediatricians, GPs, Occupational Therapists, Speech Therapists and other health professionals to implement appropriate individual reading programs for all children.
