Toe by Toe

Toe By Toe is a highly systematic page-by-page and step-by-step series of activities in one book, delivered one-to-one by a trained member of staff at Arundale.


It is an intervention which goes back to basics to improve a child's reading and writing skills.


It deliberately takes learners right back to the beginning of phonics and works up from there, based on the observation that many learners with difficulties seem never to have got the hang of phonics. Unusually, many of the stimuli are non-words, in order to focus learners’ attention solely on decoding and avoid guessing based on any other ‘cue’.
