Sorry, been away from computer for a little while.
Looks like you have had lots of useful replies. Clairehdp makes a good point about the lack of support and teacher time you are getting at school.I can empathise. Was similar story for me, hence why I went to see the reading specialist lady. By seeing her, i can now rule out any major issues (we do worry when we are not teachers ourselves), and she gave me useful, INDIVIDUAL goals/guidlines in her report for ech of my children. And corrected their reading level as school had them on wrong level! I now feel confident enough to support them myself at home. Money well spent in my opinion. Maybe give her a go? re time, it was about 40-60 minutes, i forget exactly how long, but it's a one off fee no matter how long it takes. Email her, firstname.lastname@example.org or i can give you her number (not sure if allowed to post it here though?). HTH
