Engage your employees and help change the life of primary school kids with learning difficulties, by investing in Learning Links’ Reading for Life program. The program targets children in Years 2-4 who are struggling and falling behind in their literacy development. Our program, with the use of funds and volunteers, is proven to increase children’s literacy skills and on average children make gains of 8 months from when they started. It also helps them regain confidence in themselves and feel equal to their peers.
Early intervention is critical as the learning gap widens over time when children start falling behind. Children with learning difficulties improve by only 6 months for every year they attend school, with their peers improving by a full 12 months. For example, by the time a child with a learning difficulty has finished year 5, they will only be performing at the level of a Year 3 student.
There is little government funding available for children with learning difficulties as most do not have a diagnosed disability. These children are not eligible for NDIS and there are no other significant sources of funding for interventions that apply to learning difficulties. Many children therefore never receive the help and intervention they require to stop them from falling behind.

Learning Links is focussed on resolving a significant and serious issue in our community – the negative impact of learning difficulties on our children and their future. The benefits of the program are sustainable for each participating child. Learning difficulties can impact multiple generations creating a cycle of disadvantage. By investing in educational opportunities for disadvantaged children you will be helping to break this cycle.
Please note volunteering is not compulsory to invest in this program, volunteers can be sourced from the community.
