Literacy Intervention

Please note that due to an overwhelming demand for services, we are no longer taking new clients for the foreseeable future. We are working hard to increase capacity.


Rise Literacy provides specialist literacy intervention services in the Canberra region to students aged 4 to 13 years.

We deliver tailored sessions for small groups and one-on-one tutoring sessions focused on reading, writing (handwriting and written expression), spelling and comprehension. 

We offer a unique coaching model where parents or caregivers attend all intervention sessions and are provided comprehensive revision materials (Home Learning Folder) which support continued learning between sessions. The Home Learning Folder consists of 1-3 decodable books, session plans for parents to follow and word reading cards to match the content being revised. At the beginning of the intervention sessions, parents are also provided a Word Building kit.

All sessions are individually tailored to meet the learning needs and goals of each student, taking into account their interests and background. The sessions incorporate core elements of the following high-quality, evidence-informed approaches:
