Based on the daily life of a child, A Busy Day offers a different approach for those who find the process of reading difficult. It provides the basic fundamentals for early literacy involving pre-reading, writing and communication skills. It is a flexible reading approach linking pictures and text with functional nouns.
This interactive reading tool can be adapted to suit the needs of slow starters in the mainstream classroom, for those with communication and language difficulties and for students learning English as a second language. The program is particularly effective for children on the autistic spectrum, those with Down's syndrome, attention deficit, and visual learners. This exciting program teaches comprehension of the printed word in an interesting, fun and motivational way.
