SPELL-Links is not a "one-size fits most" program; your child receives only the instruction she needs. No more precious time wasted with re-learning concepts already mastered, memorizing complex rules, or doing busy work not supported by research. SPELL-Links’ revolutionary curriculum leverages the brain's innate wiring through a speech-to-print model. It helps students connect letters to the sounds they speak, improve the brain's pattern recognition system, and learn to think about their thinking. These research-supported differences in SPELL-Links' approach can have a significant impact on your child's rate of learning to read, write, and spell. Whether your child is receiving help at school or through private services outside of school, there's something more you can do to help.
