Put the Power of a Professional Assessment in Your Hands

We frequently hear from parents of struggling readers and spellers who feel frustrated and aren’t sure where to turn for reading and spelling help. An in-depth assessment of word study skills is the first step in making sure your child receives the reading and spelling help she needs. 

SPELL-2 collects and analyzes your child’s misspellings to tell you why your child is struggling with reading and spelling and precisely what type of word study instruction your child needs.

SPELL-2 Identifies Problems Often Missed By Other Assessments

Spelling is the mortar that connects the sounds and symbols of our language. It’s the very foundation of reading and writing.
A misspelling indicates that your child is missing an important piece of language knowledge. Our patented spelling error analysis is a highly sensitive measure of the word study knowledge and skills that are critical for reading and writing and can reveal word study deficits missed by other assessments!
