Reading and writing success begins with word study – a systematic way of learning, practicing and applying knowledge of sounds, letters and word meanings. With word study all students, including struggling readers, reluctant writers and those with learning disabilities such as dyslexia and dysgraphia, gain skills and confidence. SPELL-Links to Reading & Writing uniquely combines speech to print, multi-linguistic, and meta-linguistic word study instruction to produce strong writers and fluent readers with deep comprehension and rich vocabularies.

Dr. Louisa Moats:

"SPELL-Links Assessment (SPELL, SPELL-2) will direct teachers toward…aspects of language, and encourage the use of more enlightened instructional practices that truly educate students in word studyI am pleased to be among the first to appreciate the excellent work that has gone into this product, and I applaud the authors’ achievement."
