Our values

We help one another with generosity
The young people who pass through the Reading Language Gym are a shared responsibility.  Trainers and therapists help one another so that we can best serve the children we work with. We talk honestly and talk openly with children, schools, colleagues and parents.

We invite children to join our program
The children are our clients and they have a sense of choice
We accept that intervention at the right time is most effective
When children leave, the door is always open to them to return because we understand that learning challenges change with time and the new demands of higher grades.

We believe in a strong work ethic
We believe that anything is possible with focused, intensive intervention
We do not believe in quick fixes or miracle cures.  We acknowledge each small miracle of success and honour children for hard work

We are open to change
We learn from parents, children, colleagues and continued education courses.  With this knowledge we aim to experiment with new ideas and refine our approach.

We aim for excellence

We are an accredited journal club which means we meet as a team on a regular basis to question our methods and compare them to current research.
