Welcome to Read3 User Training for Speech Pathologists!

We'd love your feedback!

Please take a few minutes to complete our

Training Wrap Up

Thanks for joining us for our special SLP User Training. We hope you found the sessions informative and are ready to leap in and start administering the Read3 learning system with your clients.

Your feedback is invaluable so spare a few minutes to complete the training evaluation (link above) for us. Training online has its challenges so the more we can glean from you guys on how to streamline delivery of information (and ensure we don't bamboozle everyone) the better. 😊

We are still waiting on Chunk Check demonstrations from a few of you. It has been a fantastic learning experience for us to see how each of you approach this activity. Please forward your Dropbox/Google/OneDrive link to

Certificate of Completion: Your certificate will be issued following the submission of the Chunk Check demonstration. For those who have been unable to attend any sessions live, we will also touch base to determine which sessions have been completed and your level of understanding prior to issuing of certificates.

Training page access: To ensure you have plenty of time to re-watch content, this page will remain open for another six weeks. Once access to training materials has expired (7 June 2023), this link will no longer be accessible from the 'My Learning' menu. 

Join our Professional Facebook Group: We encourage you to join this page and ask your questions here. That way 'the Read3 collective' can benefit from the topic of discussion. Remember, no question is too small - we learn a lot about how we can improve program design/training and communication from the types of questions asked, so ask away!    

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, please understand you are not alone on this journey. Learning how to best support our most vulnerable young readers takes time and lots of experimentation! If you need assistance, please contact

From the whole team at Read3, we thank you again and welcome to our community!

Session 4 Follow Up

Thanks everyone who was able to join us live. As Robyn said, this is where things get interesting as we start to apply knowledge and intervention methods to real children!

We have created a document of the solutions to all content that was discussed in the session and breakout rooms so you'll have a handy reference guide to pore over as you start to explore your own client's challenges.

Session 4 Replay 

Group discussion following the break out rooms starts at 40 minutes. At 1:12 alternate pathways for implementing Read3 are discussed, in addition to completing M3.1 ahead of M2 for some children, Robyn and Helen discuss why they often complete M1.5 (digraphs) ahead of M1.4 (doubles).

Session 3 Follow up

Thanks everyone who made it along for the session. In the questions following, the question was raised about which rime endings to review in each session. Check the Chunk Check instructions first and if no specific guidance is provided, use a random selection from any previous step and/or ones you know the child finds more difficult. If you need a central point to remind yourself which chunks are covered in each step, the Chunk Check Record of Mastery page (under Monitoring>Quick Links) is what you are looking for.

Extra Documents Discussed

  Read3 STIKI Quiz Skills Summary
Provides a summary of  skills mastered in each step of the Read3 program. This is a useful document to 'copy and paste' from if you need a quick record of what the child has mastered. If they passed the STIKI Quiz they have mastered this skill! A Google doc version has been included on the page as well to assist with 'copy and paste' 
Location: Monitoring > Quick Links

  Read3 Model of Mastery: Activities By Step
This document outlines the activities that support each component of the model of mastery. Use as is a handy guide to consolidate skills before moving on.
Location: Monitoring > Quick Links

Homework for next week

Please record a video of yourself conducting a Chunk Check and email a share link (Dropbox/GoogleDrive/OneDrive) to along with your scoring (either completed paperwork or scores typed into an email). If you don't currently have a Read3 child, ask your friend/partner/child/neighbour to complete one (making a few errors) so you can practise.
