IDL Literacy


IDL Literacy is a cloud based intervention software, specifically designed to help improve the reading and spelling ability of those with dyslexia and dyslexic tendencies.  Many schools have also reported the benefit of using IDL with those who: are autistic, have Meares-Irlen Syndrome, are EAL learners or struggling with reading and spelling in general.  The programme consists of over 1000 lessons, which provide structured, sequential learning with a multi-sensory approach.  

Currently, over 1600 schools use IDL nationally, and provide positive feedback on how IDL is helping pupils to improve their literacy skills. If you’d like to find out more, please visit our website – Here you will find a 'Walkthrough' video explaining how IDL works, further information and the facility to request a free seven day trial of the programme.
