The SpellRead program focuses on developing a student's "phonological automaticity", the ability to master sound-letter relationships and automatically process the sounds. Activities in phonemic, phonetics, and language-based reading and writing form the foundation of SpellRead. The SpellRead approach ensures that students' reading and writing skills become as developed and automatic as their verbal ability.
Students and educators see progress from the first lessons. All lessons are clearly defined in the instructor manuals and taught in a carefully sequenced and explicit manner. Each skills isthoroughly practiced in a fast-paced format so that students stay engaged in learning.
The SpellRead Program is scientifically-based and designed to meet the specific needs of struggling students.
Since its inception, SpellRead has integrated rigorous scientific evaluation into its program development. This commitment has built SpellRead's formidable track record in providing relable, consistent success in "glosing the gap" between struggling students and their same-age peers.
