StepsWeb was first introduced to Dannevirke by an RTLB (Resource Teachers: Learning and Behaviour) after identifying a small group of students who were achieving below the expected literacy level. After reviewing the programme, the staff felt StepsWeb offered a way for students to develop their literacy skills effectively while also having fun.
St. Joseph’s recognised a need to provide structured literacy intervention for students who they had identified required further support in spelling, phonological awareness as well as providing additional help to their ESOL students.
In 2013, Henderson Valley School, a semi-rural school of 400 pupils started using the Steps program. The SENCO (Special Education Needs Coordinator) was looking for a program that could help SEN (Special Education Needs) students excel in literacy learning at their own pace.
Steps is being used for a pilot project in four schools in Samoa, two primary-intermediate schools and two high schools. Paul Henriques, dyslexic himself and Pacific Islands Steps Trainer and Director of Dyslexia Aid, is working with the Samoan Ministry of Education, Sports and Culture (MESC) on this new initiative.
Glenfield College used the individual programme on a 1:1 basis with students who had significant learning disabilities and found that the students loved the highly structured, multi-sensory qualities of the programme.
