Fischer Family Trust Wave 3 (FFT Wave 3) is an intervention for children who have difficulties learning to read and write. It is aimed at children who need individual rather than small group support. Teaching sessions of between 15 to 20 minutes are delivered daily by a trained Learning Support Assistant for between 10-20 weeks, depending on the child’s needs and progress made during the programme. Each child’s programme is based on the initial assessment. It addresses skills and knowledge at word, sentence and text level. Letter and Word work is always immediately applied to reading or writing continuous text. The aim is for the child to develop a range of independent reading and writing strategies.
