At Diamond Valley SDS, we strive to support every student to learn to read, write, spell and develop a love of literacy.
Our philosophy is that ‘no child is too anything… to learn to read and write’.
Literacy at Diamond Valley SDS is embedded across the whole school day. Our team also supports our students literacy development through:
- Shared and Guided Reading programs
- Letter Sound Awareness activities
- Writing programs e.g. predictable chart writing
- The use of decodable readers
We understand that many of our students with complex communication needs must learn to spell any words that are not already in their communication system/s, in order to become truly autonomous communicators.
We value the importance of developing our student’s literacy skills and aim to provide great literacy instruction for all at Diamond Valley SDS.
