Proficient language skills provide the essential building blocks for academic and social achievement. This website provides free resources to teach language and phonemic awareness skills in the classroom. All resources have been successfully trialed in whole class programs in primary schools using a Response To Intervention (RTI) model. The program is implemented through collaborative planning based on data of student outcomes and in-class coaching provided by speech pathologists to teachers. The resources are now being used in several schools across Victoria.
This website and all resources contained in this website were developed by speech pathologist Pam Thuan. Your feedback is welcome. To enquire about consultancy, make comments, ask questions or request further resources please feel free to ring or email Pam. Contact
A COP (community of practice) in the Speech Pathology Australia learning hub will begin on the 2nd of September run by Pam. It’s aim is to support speech pathologists implementing or planning to implement the RTI model in mainstream schools.
