The Effectiveness of IDL Literacy - A Summary of Research

In recent years IDL Literacy has undergone significant development and growth – moving from a one-to-one learning model to a multi-sensory independent learning programme. This change has hugely extended the reach and usability of IDL, with the number of learners using the intervention increasing year-on-year. With this in mind, we have reviewed research findings into the effectiveness of the IDL programme to see if it is still a proven solution for increasing reading and spelling ability of pupils with dyslexia and other learning difficulties.
