IDL for Primary Schools

IDL Literacy is mainly used by primary schools. Our software was originally designed to help dyslexic pupils improve their reading and spelling skills, but many of our schools report success with EAL and autistic learners, and those with Meares Irlen Syndrome. Some even use it as a school wide literacy improvement tool.

Most primary schools begin to use IDL with Year 2 SEN pupils, and frequently those who haven’t met the ‘Year 1 Phonics Screening Test’ criteria, generally reporting significant progress within a very short space of time.

Our software provides a digital platform to practise phonics, spelling, punctuation, sentence and reading skills at a level appropriate to a pupil’s own ability. There are over a 1000 multi-sensory lessons of structured sequential learning available, making it great value for money.

IDL Literacy is easy to use, helping pupils to become independent learners at an early age, increasing their confidence and self-esteem, and improving their approach to writing and learning in general. A pupil’s ‘learning account’ can even move with them from primary to secondary school aiding transition.


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.
