*** The iDeaL Approach to Structured Literacy ***

Learning Matters


The iDeaL Approach provides classroom teachers, sencos, LSCs and school-based intervention teachers with the knowledge, appropriate assessments, reporting systems and multisensory resources to explicitly teach foundation literacy skills in a Structured Literacy approach. It is a complete, comprehensive, and cost-effective approach that will lead to increased student outcomes in reading fluency, vocabulary and writing, when delivered as intended.

The iDeaL Approach is New Zealand’s only online Structured Literacy platform, and can be accessed anywhere online via the iDeaL Online Platform. The platform provides educators with an informative, diagnostic, systematic, and cumulative approach to deliver Structured Literacy through direct instruction in both mainstream classes and intervention settings.
