Amanda, is one of the best literacy therapists that I have ever worked with. With exceptional training and experience Amanda provides evidence based literacy therapy intervention. She is brilliant at communicating and supporting the families and updating me with any further concerns and outcomes. Kids love going there as she is very friendly and engaging. A positive experience for these kids who have had very unpleasant and anxiety provoking experiences at school, due to their learning difficulties.                                       Dr Chanka Nanayakkara


"RIP IT UP Reading has done wonders for both my son's reading and confidence. We were really looking for answers and help when we started. Amanda gave us both! "  Brooke

"My son has come a long way very quickly. He is a lot more confident with reading. His teacher has also put him up one level in spelling, first time ever during his schooling he's not on the lowest spelling level.
He has also gained interest in reading novels at last. He is loving reading the Treehouse books. 

Thank you for helping our boy." Deeanne
