There are several studies that we can provide you with that will provide support for PLD’s structured synthetic phonics approach.
- PLD received significant mentions in the 2015 ‘High Performing School: what do they have in common?’ (Louden) research. You can find a summary of the research here and the whole article here.
- Speech Pathology Australia wrote a case study (found here) on the significant progress that was shown in a remote school, with students going from non-readers to readers very rapidly once alphabet sounds and phonemic awareness was systematically targeted.
- PLD has just been identified by DSF (and all Dyslexia SPELD Foundations around the country) as a recommended wave 1 program and wave 2 program. Wave 3 programs are programs such as ‘Mini-Lit’ and ‘Multi-Lit’. Read more here.
