PLD is excited to announce the 2024 launch of our brand new Integrated SSP Kits, a brand new all-in-one kit created to make it easier for teachers to facilitate strong literacy outcomes in their classroom.
PLD’s Integrated SSP Kits for Foundation and Year 1
Introducing PLD’s innovative Integrated SSP Kits, thoughtfully designed to streamline the teaching experience within the framework of PLD’s Structured Synthetic Phonics (SSP) program. Previously, SSP implementation involved juggling multiple components, including placement tests, word lists and dictation passages across three separate resources.
The all new Integrated SSP Kits now consolidate a full year of week-by-week teaching materials and Daily Reviews into one comprehensive kit, available in both hard copy and digital formats.

Is it necessary to upgrade from ‘Starter Packs’ to the Integrated SSP Kits if we already have Starter Packs?
In short, no. Many schools will continue to achieve substantial literacy outcomes purely on the basis of implementing the Starter Packs. Teachers planning from various PLD programs find their knowledge of testing procedures, phonic sequence and implementation become more automated over time and with practice. Once confident, schools may consider upgrading from the Starter Packs to the Integrated SSP Kits, to further enhance the quality of the teaching and learning experience in their classrooms.
Integrated SSP Kits are recommended for schools to investigate with the following variables:
Low ICSEA ranking.
Students with poor entry levels.
High levels of graduate teachers or impermanent teaching staff.
UPGRADE information is provided below.
