Structured Literacy Program

“Structured literacy (SL) emphasizes a teacher-led, highly explicit and systematic approach that effectively addresses foundational literacy skills, a core need of children with dyslexia as well as many other struggling students. Also, in all components of literacy, SL emphasizes teaching that is clear, systematic, and unambiguous to the learner—all important qualities for students experiencing difficulty.”

(Spear-Swerling, L. 2018)(Brady, S. 2011)
