In this session, Beccie Hawes, the Head of Service at Cadmus Inclusive, looks at which reading skills our children have lost and gained during lockdown and gives advice on how to support children with reading as they return to school. She explains how the New Group Reading Test (NGRT) can be used to identify reading issues and how the York Assessment of Reading for Comprehension (YARC) can be used to delve deeper.
