Reading and Spelling Instruction to Adult Learners

All levels and all ages – from beginner readers to professionals needing assistance with spelling


  • Do you know of a colleague or employee who battles with reading or spelling?
  • Have they been attending traditional ABET classes, but still made little progress?
  • Do they avoid attending training courses on offer?
  • Do they complain that their eye sight is very bad when asked to complete forms?
  • Do you find that an employee who has so much potential is underachieving in the workplace?

They may not be able to read or may have had a bad experience that prevents them from reading with confidence therefore resulting in them avoiding any reading or writing tasks.

With the right intervention they could start accessing training and other opportunities offered to them with greater ease and enthusiasm!

READ FOR AFRICA has been providing ABETter Solution to adults for over 10 years.

Reading Therapy offered to individuals from beginner readers to professionals who read well but need help with their spelling.

Lessons  can be delivered in the workplace for groups or in a relaxed Environment off-site at one of our reading therapists  offices. 

Read For Africa teaches reading and spelling using the Phono-Graphix Reading method. Reading and Spelling skills are taught at the same time which saves time and money.

Phono-Graphix™ is a straightforward reading method, which takes the sounds of the language  – and teaches the various sound-pictures (letters) that represent those sounds in careful stages.

  • Computer work can be incorporated into the sessions to ensure that learners integrate newly developed literacy skills when creating, editing and formatting documents in Word and Excel.
  • Programmes can be aligned to all ABET levels and contextualised to the industry in which a person works
  • Programmes are also offered as pre-cursors to specific learnership and other skills development programmes.
  • Buddy Reader Workshops
    Mentors and coaches can attend workshops to learn how they can become “buddy readers” and also contribute to the development/improvement of employees or co-workers literacy skills in their organisations.
