Parent Assisted Immersive Reading (PAIR) is an at-home read-aloud program that accelerates reading readiness in young children. It is designed for use with children aged two to nine years old.
Its benefits are dramatic, broad-ranging and long-lasting.
The PAIR program involves parents regularly reading aloud to their child while at the same time engaging them in meaningful conversation about the book.
These picture books are specifically designed to be easy for a parent to use with their child.
They come with vital prompts, tips, and questions that allow parents to effectively enrich each reading session.
P.A.I.R. books capture a child’s interest from the start.
Illustrations are bold and colourful and the stories wholesome.
P.A.I.R. is based on a wealth of local and international research. Its purpose and structure are underpinned by the work of some of the world’s leading educators. P.A.I.R. is designed to help parents make their child ‘reading-ready’.
Put simply – If parents read aloud to their child regularly during the early years they can lift their child’s reading skills significantly, now and for the future.
PAIR works just as well in the teacher/student situation.
