Aleph Therapeutic Learning makes literacy tasks enjoyable, builds confidence and reveals ability

Aleph Therapeutic Learning was developed by Carrie Gaye, and is based in Brixham, Devon.

A low income should not exclude anyone from receiving a service that can contribute positively to their education or well-being, and I will now be providing most services for a donation-only fee. Feel welcome to call or email with your requirements.

Charitable and Voluntary organisations are also welcome to call or email, to discuss making Aleph’s services affordable.

Aleph Therapeutic Learning provides natural and engaging ways for children, young people and adults to develop literacy skills. Younger learners are also helped by The Literacy Gnomes – known as Gnom Com. You can find these happy characters by clicking on ‘Meet Gnom Com!’ in the menu bar.

Aleph also provides workshops that are designed to enhance mental and emotional health in adults. For these, please click on ‘Other services’ in the menu bar.

Aleph’s principles and approaches are designed to create an anxiety-free, enjoyable learning experience, where innate ability can be uncovered.

Perhaps some of the following concerns seem familiar…

A young person –

  • just ‘switches off’ when it comes to written tasks and assignments
  • doesn’t understand the topic and can’t cope with the homework
  • has been assessed as having learning difficulties, but you feel sure they could be doing better and feeling happier
  • finds it difficult to use descriptive phrases or to grasp the concepts of punctuation and paragraphs
  • struggles to express what they know in writing
  • has difficulty in sequencing
  • has a tummy ache every Monday and wants to stay away from school

What the Aleph approach can do:

  • Use age-appropriate techniques to find the causes of problems and provide solutions
  • Help a young person to feel comfortable with learning tasks
  • Tap into a young person’s natural ability – it’s there
  • Develop confident and imaginative use of language
  • Demonstrate topic relevance by enabling a young person to call on their own life experience
  • Use enjoyable activities to enhance retention of instructions
  • Help you to have better communication with those involved in a young person’s education
