Evidence-Based Resources

The best places to look for evidence-based resources are websites that cater for all learners, including those with learning difficulties. While some children will seemingly have little trouble learning to read and may need more practise, the same skills apply for all children. Using a resource that teaches explicitly and systematically ensures all skills are taught thoroughly and none are left out. The result is more children who become skilled readers within the critical first three years of school.
