Reading and spelling assessment and report   |  


The CRC Individual Tutor Program caters for children of all school ages. It is specifically tailored to your child's literacy needs. The aim of this program is to assist students to comprehend written text and engage as happy, confident readers. Tuition is one-to-one, usually with the same tutor for the entire tuition period.

The CRC Writing program is a tailored program for students who may read well, but still find spelling and writing to be a challenge. This program includes a spelling component with a targeted approach to teach the rules, conventions, structure and logic of the English language. Tuition is one-to-one, usually with the same tutor for the entire tuition period. 

All students are required to complete one semester of tuition initially. Some may need to participate for longer and the Clinic will provide recommendations about further enrolment if this is necessary. A fee for this will be charged based on each extra school term.

Reading and Spelling Assessment and Report

This assessment is a necessary pre-requisite to program entry as it allows us to determine firstly if your child is a suitable candidate for optimum progress and then if tuition is necessary, which program would be of most benefit. You will also receive a written report. 

The assessment takes approximately 30-45 minutes, depending on the age of the student. The cost is $250. 

The Canberra Reading Clinic can also provide an optional post-tuition assessment and report for $450. This assessment complements the pre-tuition tests administered at the beginning of the program. They provide information on your child’s language development, including spelling and reading ages.
