Writing Composition

Mrs. Spalding constantly sought ways to make her method easier to teach and learn. In The Spalding Method, instruction is explicit, systematic, interactive, diagnostic, and multisensory. The success of The Spalding Method with diverse students, even those who have learning disabilities or are English Language Learners, is in large part due to the integration of scientifically-based content and methodology.


The Writing Road to Reading is a favorite of classroom and resource room teachers, adult educators as well as home educators because Spalding-taught students become competent and enthusiastic readers, spellers and writers. It is used with great success in the United States, Canada, Australia, Central America, Europe, Singapore and Taiwan.
