AcceleRead AcceleWrite is one of the interventions recommended by Professor Greg Brooks in his authoritative and regularly updated study
“What works for children and young people with literacy difficulties?”
Greg Brooks has examined the evidence base for a substantial number of literacy interventions.
This is an extract from what he says about AcceleRead AcceleWrite:
“Martin Miles in Devon and Vivienne Clifford in Harrow developed a scheme they called ‘The Talking Computer Project’ in 1992, trialled it in Somerset, and named the published version AcceleRead AcceleWrite.
The original target group was children with dyslexic-type difficulties, but the programme is now used with children with other forms of literacy difficulty, and Mary Nugent in Ireland reports it has been used successfully there with Traveller children.
Most of the data analysed in this report come from KS2, but it has been used in all school years from Y1 to Y11.”
