Learn to read with the I Can Read System, developed over 20 years by Australian educational psychologists. Hornsby I Can Read is a total literacy centre for students of all ages and all abilities who wish to learn to read or improve English literacy. The system teaches not just those students who wants to learn to read, but all students who wish to improve their English literacy skills.
Classes are small, 2-5 students, and no one has failed to significantly improve with the I Can Read System. Available in over 60 centres in 8 countries, more than 100,000 students have been through the system, which is successful because it offers:
• Specialised literacy programmes
• Pre-test/post-test outcomes-based environment
• Quality pre-reading foundation programme
• Qualified teachers specifically trained in the I Can Read System
• Effective reading and instruction programme
• Language rich environment
• Strong use of expressive (spoken) English
• Well-designed programmes that are cumulative, hierarchical and structured.
• Systematic procedures that are evidence based
The programmes available at Hornsby range from very young learners, through school aged children, to adult and include:
Little Bears Club
A child-centred programme with an emphasis on expressive and receptive English.
Thinking and Creative Skills
Based on a multiple intelligences approach, this programme is designed to stimulate the imagination, encourage cognitive growth, improve verbal confidence, and introduce phonological awareness.
I Can Read Preliminary

I Can Read
A multi-sensory structured reading programme which uses a unique method to teach the student to read and spell quickly and easily. The programme has been independently tested and shown to be highly effective.
Comprehension and Creative Writing Programme
A delightful programme developed to address handwriting, creative writing, spelling, comprehension and vocabulary. The Comprehension and Creative Writing Program has been specifically designed to introduce the young child to an appreciation of literature and at the same time stimulate the imagination and desire to create stories.
Advanced Language and Literacy Skills
This programme closely follows the latest syllabus requirements for primary school children in their country or state. It targets both literacy and oral skills components of the child’s development and has a strong emphasis on creative writing and grammar. Designed to support the child’s literacy acquisition through the primary years and improve performance at school, it is suitable for children who can read independently. The programme is divided into three strands: Primary 1-2 (Lower Primary or Stage 1 Primary) Primary 3-4 (Middle Primary or Stage 2 Primary) Primary 5-6 (Upper Primary or Stage 3 Primary)
Free, No Obligation, Diagnostic Assessment
Every student who is enrolled in an I Can Read Centre is required to take a short diagnostic assessment which will determine the
programme that best accommodates the student’s needs. Call or email us to arrange a free assessment.
