"Across all written languages, reading development involves: a re-arrangement of older structures to make new learning circuits; a capacity for specialization in working groups of neurons within these structures for representing information; and automaticity - the capacity of these neuronal groups and learning circuits to retrieve and connect this information at nearly automatic rates."
~ Dr. Maryanne Wolf, Proust and the Squid

Why SPELL-Links? The human brain is biologically wired for spoken language, not for reading and writing. SPELL-Links uses a speech-to-print approach and organizes literacy instruction based on the brain's innate, biological wiring and organization for spoken language. SPELL-Links instruction works the way the brain works, first helping students to 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.
As each of us learns to read and write, the brain must rearrange itself, leveraging the innate oral language centers of the brain and forming new neural connections to read and write effectively. SPELL-Links uses the Connectionist Word Study model based on the most current research, including brain-imaging studies, to leverage the brain's biological wiring for oral language and help students develop neural pathways and “functional connectivity” of the regions of the brain involved in effective reading and writing.
Use SPELL-Links to leverage the biological wiring of the brain, provide structured literacy instruction that develops functional connectivity among multiple regions of the brain, and build meta-cognitive skills for effective reading and writing. See results!
