We’ve made it easy to buy, use and share eReader access.

Each seat (eReader user) is linked initially to the email address provided by the eReader Manager during the purchasing process – or later allocated through the Manager’s account page.

Entering your email address and password on our login page will enable you to access to all 66 x eReaders.  This access will continue for 12 months, during which time the seat can be transferred to another email address for any remaining time.

Purchasing multiple seats (eReader users) will enable you to allocate separate individual access to students, teachers, clients or family members –  using their email addresses.

The good news is that Launch Literacy Program has been designed so that it is a simple, structured and straightforward program designed for use by any adult.

Follow the steps laid out in the Instruction Book to build those essential, early literacy skills in children.

You will need to allocate regular practice times to work through the Launch Literacy Program. Soon both of you will be laughing as the child practises their reading and shows off their handwriting and spelling skills.

With reference to state and territory education guidelines, Launch Literacy has been designed to support classroom goals in the ‘foundation stage’ of literacy development.

The below curriculum goals have been specifically addressed in the design and structure of Launch Literacy:

  • Identify and make sounds associated with the beginning letter of words or images
  • Blend sounds associated with letters when reading consonant-vowel-consonant words
  • Recognise short vowels, consonant digraphs and consonant blends
  • Understand how to spell one and two syllable words with common letter patterns
  • Understand that a syllable must contain a vowel sound

Yes

Launch Literacy is designed to contribute to the acquisition of literacy and language skills essential to the growth of independence and social adeptness in children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder in the following ways:

  • Decoding
  • Encoding
  • Letter Formation
  • Comprehension
  • Problem Prediction and Solving
  • Introduction of inference  and prediction within the written text

Launch Literacy Program was created by Alison Lee, one of Australia’s leading Speech and Language Pathologists,  in order to provide herself and colleagues with a high quality set of resources which would

  • Reduce session preparation time and be cost effective
  • Progress the children through each essential step of literacy development
  • Be able to be implemented by both specialists and parents
  • Be fun for everyone to use

Alison, practicing from her long established Melbourne private clinic, has enabled many hundreds of children to develop essential reading and writing skills. By applying clinical diagnostic and therapy skills initially gained through working with adults who had lost literacy skills through trauma and illness, Alison  ensures that the childrens’ individual therapy programs are evidence based, highly effective and fun.
