Brief description This randomise control trial will test treatments for children with different types of reading difficulty. The outcomes will reveal how struggling readers should be supported in classrooms and by the Reading Assistance Voucher programme. This will reduce the number of struggling readers who attempt suicide, drop out of school, or abuse drugs to try and escape their sense of failure. This will suport the Government's efforts to ensure that Australians have A Healthy Start to Life.
