Optima Reading is a research-based programme that has been developed through a series of studies over the last 20 years and has been shown in multiple evaluations to have a huge impact in raising students’ attainments. On average, students make 12 months’ progress in six months and the incidence of reading difficulties has been reduced from the typical 20-25% to less than 3%. Optima Reading is available as an online programme and can be used with the whole class, groups or individual pupils.
