Diagnostic Prescriptive Assessment

For students who need specialized instruction to be successful, SPELL-2 precisely identifies a student’s individual word study strengths and deficits. Unlike other programs that place students at an entry point or stage with lessons and deliver one-size-fits-all instruction from that point forward, the SPELL-2 diagnostic, prescriptive assessment software for grades 2+ creates a uniquely customized laser-focused word study program for each student to more quickly improve spelling, reading, and writing.


Assessment Software
SPELL-2 purchase options let you choose SPELL-2 for use on one or multiple computers. With SPELL-2g (Grouping Tool) educators can also automatically group students who share the same instructional needs.

Integrated Interventions

Create a seamless school-wide support system that includes general education, special education, ELL, and Title 1 Reading services. SPELL-Links helps students make sense of the sound structure of English words and systematically teaches them how to connect sounds, letter patterns, and meanings to read and spell words. Through hands-on lessons, students will learn to apply their word study knowledge to everyday reading and writing for results that last beyond a single weekly test. All Learning By Design products are aligned with Common Core Standards for speaking, listening, reading, language, and writing.
