Literacy Software Overview
The IDL Literacy Intervention is a speaking-computer based multi-sensory system which supports learners with dyslexia and other learning difficulties to increase their reading and spelling ages. The programme was specifically designed for those with dyslexia and is used as an intervention but can also be used effectively as a school wide literacy solution.
Over the last 40 years numerous research studies have shown that IDL Literacy is a proven solution for increasing the reading and spelling ability of pupils with dyslexia and other learning difficulties, including dyspraxia and Meares – Irlen Syndrome, by an average of 11 months after just 26 hours of use.
Is the IDL Literacy Software Effective?
IDL Literacy is proven to increase reading and spelling ages in both primary and secondary school learners. For these students, the software provides the missing step in their literacy development.
The Literacy software incorporates all aspects of a balanced literacy programme and is structured, yet flexible enough to cater for individual differences. In addition to covering the reading process from phonological awareness to fluency, the software includes components that improve spelling, handwriting, vocabulary and comprehension skills.
