The Transformative Power of Butterfly Reading

At our model Butterfly Saturday Reading Schools we help children to learn to read by the systematic Butterfly reading programme.The children, aged five to twelve, come to Real Action from London’s most deprived communities.

They achieve astounding results: our children’s reading age improves by over a year in just twenty hours’ Butterfly teaching. And these improvements have a lasting positive impact on their lives.

The educational fortunes – the entire future – of a child can be transformed in a matter of months. We call this transformation The Butterfly Effect.
