SpellRead is a structured literacy program that meets the needs of all developing readers including those struggling with a learning disability, dyslexia, ADD, etc.
Halifax Learning has provided the gold-standard in SpellRead program delivery since 1999 and supported the learning needs of over 3000 struggling readers.
SpellRead has been rigorously tested as part of numerous clinical studies, the results of which are published in journals and reading research foundations such as the Florida Centre for Reading Research and What Works Clearinghouse. These results show SpellRead to be the number one program in developing reading comprehension.
SpellRead was developed in Prince Edward Island by Dr. Kay MacPhee. SpellRead was brought to Halifax in the late 1990s with support from Dr. Wayne MacDonald, the Chief of Psychology at the lWK Children’s Hospital. Today, the program is widely accepted and referred to by psychologists, speech therapists and educators alike.
