diagnostic prescriptive assessment

Begin with SPELL-Links assessment (SPELL-2) to pinpoint a student's 

underlying linguistic deficits. Unlike other programs that place students at a starting point within lessons and progress in a one-size-fits all fashion from there, the SPELL-links assessment creates a uniquely customized word study intervention program for each student to help you more quickly improve that student's spelling, reading, and writing.

Why SPELL-Links to Reading and Writing?

Because Speech to Print + Multi-Linguistic + Meta-Linguistic = The results everyone is counting on. 

why your practice needs spell-links.

Everyone is counting on you to make a difference. SPELL-Links can help. Unlike traditional phonics and word study programs which begin with the written letter and teach students to match the letter to a sound (print to speech), SPELL-Links helps 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 (speech to print). This is exactly how the brain works in good readers and writers!  

SPELL-Links students also learn meta-linguistic strategies and develop the executive function skills that empower them to independently apply their word study knowledge, skills, and strategies to independently read, write, and spell.
