The systematic yet flexible format of SPELL-Links' structured literacy program allows you to teach only what a student needs to learn. This literacy curriculum provides tools and materials — including carefully constructed word lists, pattern-loaded reading and writing materials, and Home-Link activities — for systematic practice with application of word study knowledge, skills, and strategies.

The Connectionist Model of Word Study featured in SPELL-Links is critical for developing neural pathways and building functional connectivity of linguistic processes and regions of the brain that comprise the reading and writing circuits. SPELL-Links' multi-linguistic methods and activities ensure that students develop this functional connectivity for effective reading and writing.

SPELL-Links' meta-linguistic approach allows students to talk about and think about the linguistic properties of words, gain cognitive flexibility with multiple linguistic strategies for spelling and decoding, and practice and self-evaluate performance in realistic, active, and social settings. Explicit instruction and practice with SPELL-Links' meta-linguistic word study strategies leads to the development of independent readers and writers.
