We are excited to announce that Small Group Tutoring sessions will commence at The Learning Space during Term Two, taking place on a weekly basis.

Combined with years of teaching experience, a Multi Sensory Structured Language (MSL) approach is applied. This is backed by research to support children with Dyslexia and other unique learning needs. Through these approaches, children are able to learn the relationship between letters and sounds they produce. This has a profound impact on a child's ability to read, write and spell.

In our years of work at The Learning Space, we have delighted in observing children who are unable to read and write, grow in confidence and progress in their learning. The look in their eyes when they realise, " I can do this!" is why we are so passionate about helping children improve their literacy skills.

Parent information sessions will be provided prior to the commencement of Group Tutoring sessions.

Spaces are limited and likely to fill quickly. Express your interest by contacting Lauren via mobile or email.

“The ability to read and comprehend depends upon rapid and automatic recognition and decoding of single words.”
“Slow and inaccurate decoding are the best predictors of deficits in reading comprehension” - G Lions


Celebrating the talents demonstrated by our dyslexic children is SO important!

Successful adult dyslexics often report that support of their parents and encouragement to celebrate and develop special skills and talents was essential for supporting overall development, self esteem and coping skills.

It is recommended that teachers and parents get together and identify / support individual talents and strengths.

Children with dyslexia often lack hope that the future will be any better than the present.
They feel they are the only ones with this problem.
They feel they are stupid, dumb and often worthless.
How can you touch a child’s heart and give them a sense of hope?
Get your child to write a story explaining to teachers and parents what it feels like.
Have empathy - not sympathy.
Be that teacher who makes a child feels like he or she belongs.
Find a child’s strengths and special talents. How can you use these strengths to support that particular child to feel a sense of competence?
Most importantly, be that one person who stood by a struggling student and believed in him or her and gave that particular child the courage to keep trying.
Dr Bob Brooks


Children with a range of special needs are at a greater risk of developing low self esteem (Elbaum & Vaughn, 2021).

Two factors that are related to dyslexia which make dyslexic children particularly vulnerable to low self-esteem include:
Literacy performance
co-ordination / organisational difficulties.

However, there are various risk and protective factors which can make a huge difference to the self esteem of a person with dyslexia. Protective factors include:
Parental support
Early identification
Early educational support

Risk factors:
Lack of parental support
Lack of identification
Lack of early educational support


We are currently taking bookings for small group MSL sessions. Please contact: [email protected] for further details. Limited spaces available.


Did you know that 90 percent of English words can be sounded out? They can be sounded out (decoded) because they follow spelling rules and patterns.

Only 10 percent of the English language is made up of words with irregular spelling patterns. These are the types of words that do not obey spelling pattern rules. We need to use our memories to remember words with irregular spelling patterns.

At The Learning Space, we use decodable texts to support MSL instruction. These types of texts assist students to apply their knowledge of letter / sound concepts that have been explicitly taught.


"To be effective readers students need to be able to use the six components of reading in combination." (DECD, 2016)

The six components of reading include: oral language, phonological awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency & comprehension.

MSL reading instruction is based on the same six components of reading.

What is MSL?

MSL stands for Multisensory Structured Language Education.

Multisensory teaching is an important aspect of instruction for dyslexia students. It is also supportive of all students needing literacy intervention.

MSL is a teaching approach, not a program. This approach is used by clinically trained educators.

MSL educators provide flexible, direct and explicit instruction. Students are directly taught to make connections between auditory, visual and kinesthetic pathways. This facilitates the process of learning to read, write and spell.

All students, in particular those with dyslexia require slow and thorough instruction to learn the basic language system. This includes learning the sounds and the letters that represent them - how to blend them together and pull them apart. Through MSL, students have lots of opportunities to practice these skills using their eyes, mouths and hands simultaneously to support learning retention.

MSL is emotionally sound. Learning is cumulative and progressive. Learning is gradually built upon at each child's individual learning pace (Institute for Multisensory Structured Language Education).

All children, particularly those with dyslexia require slow and thorough teaching about the basic parts of their language.

They need to learn the sounds and the letters that represent them - how to blend these together and how to pull them apart.

They also need lots of practice using their voices, ears and eyes at the same time to assist learning retention (Institute for Multisensory Structured Language Education).

At The Learning Space, we provide MSL therapy to children with dyslexia or children who are experiencing challenges with literacy learning.
