SSP Stories - Ann Henderson, TLC Noosa (QLD Australia) 

'Two of my children have been introduced to reading and literacy courtesy of Ann Henderson and the SSP Approach. I cannot recommend Ann highly enough. This is an amazing initiative, eliciting incredible results, and most importantly, instills self-confidence in children and their own ability to read. In addition, it is delivered by a highly experienced teacher who genuinely cares for and works intuitively with children.'


'This is a very well thought out system. In particular, I value that it is NOT about surface learning (memorisation) but gives students the opportunity to discover their own connections. The 'sight words' are awesome - only two words to 'memorise' - the others can be worked out. Most of all it is fun and playful.'

'After teaching children how to read and spell for the past 20 years using a variety of techniques and synthetic phonics programs, I have never seen anything that has the outcomes that this method produces. To see such young children being able to read within the first three weeks of beginning SSP and are then reading at a high level for pleasure before starting Year 1, is a constant source of joy to both myself and their parents. Boys especially are engaged, loving to read at every opportunity and almost no children are being left behind as is the norm with other programs. I continue to teach this method because I am a passionate believer that every child has a better start to their literacy journey through the implementation of the SSP approach in their early years and we need to spread the word.'
