Structured Literacy

Structured Literacy is an approach to teaching reading by breaking the process down to foundational skills (decoding, spelling) and systematically moving the student through the foundational skills to higher-level literacy skills (reading comprehension, written expression). 

Structured Literacy has proven to be an effective approach to teaching all students, including those who have dyslexia. 

The Centre For Literacy follows a set progression provided by the University of Florida Literacy Institute (UFLI) to teach foundational literacy skills; and uses a Centre For Literacy developed program backed by the Science of Reading, a wide body of research on reading, to teach higher-level literacy skills. 

Below, you will find an infographic developed by the International Dyslexia Association that highlights the elements of Structured Literacy.
