QuickSmart is an intervention program designed for students who experience persistent difficulties in literacy and/or numeracy. The programs provide a framework with short and targeted lesson components for educators to work through with their students.
The aim of QuickSmart is to enable students to become automatic (quick) in their basic skills in order to move onto more complex problem-solving skills (smart). It is based at the SiMERR National Research Centre, located at the University of New England in Armidale, Australia.
The programs come with ready-to-use resources, as well as accredited professional development training and ongoing support. They are suitable for learners in years 4 to 9, whose skill levels are below the national minimum standard. (LEARN MORE)
