There are several studies that we can provide you with that will provide support for PLD’s structured synthetic phonics approach.

PLD received significant mentions in the 2015 ‘High Performing School: what do they have in common?’ (Louden) research. You can find a summary of the research here and the whole article here.

Speech Pathology Australia wrote a case study (found here) on the significant progress that was shown in a remote school, with students going from non-readers to readers very rapidly once alphabet sounds and phonemic awareness was systematically targeted.

PLD has also been identified by DSF (and all Dyslexia SPELD Foundations around the country) as a recommended wave 1 program and wave 2 program. Wave 3 programs are programs such as ‘M ni-Lit’ and ‘Multi-Lit’. Read more here.

In 2019 DSF published a comparision of evidence-based Structured Synthetic Phonics (SSP) programs. Read how PLD compares here.
