is a specialist software program, designed to deliver highly effective literacy and dyslexia intervention. Owned by the awarding body Ascentis, IDL succeeds with both children and adults who have difficulties with reading and spelling. The success of the IDL system has been proven in schools and tuition centres, around the UK and overseas, for over 30 years. The website link can be found here: https://idlsgroup.com/
We are committed to supporting our children to be confident learners, and where there are barriers to their reading, spelling or numeracy we want to address these difficulties as quickly and effectively as possible. We believe the combination of quality first teaching and targeted intervention will help to build the child's self-esteem and attainment in these core areas of learning. IDL will form one piece of this jigsaw of learning.
If it has been suggested by your child's class teacher/s that they may find this a helpful intervention for literacy and/or numeracy please see the parent guides below for more information. Included in the package is home access, using your child's username and password created by school.
