"Imagine dining at a smorgasbord that offers not only everything you've been craving for, but also tantalises your taste buds to try something different! This has been my experience of using The Literacy Restaurant. Having worked in a Literacy Support capacity for over 15 years, I have been craving for an educational resource to bring flavour and variety to an aspect of learning support that can become dull and repetitive. I've found it to be a comprehensive and versatile tool that reinforces the essential skills for students who struggle, yet also provides variety and flexibility to drill deeply for every learner."

Jane Sheppard, Speech Pathologist and Educational Support Specialist
