SPELL-Links to Reading and Writing

Spelling Performance Evaluation for Spelling and Literacy

SPELL-Links uses a speech-to-print word study approach to leverage the brain’s innate, biological wiring and organization for oral language. Unlike traditional phonics and word study programs which begin with the written letter and teach students to match the letter to a sound, with SPELL-Links students first learn how to attend to the sound structure of spoken English words and then how to connect and combine sounds, letter patterns, and meanings to read and spell words. This is exactly how the brain works in good readers and writers—speech to reading and spelling, i.e. speech to print.
