The Little Learners Assessment of Reading Skills - LLARS


    We're dedicated to bridging the gap between evidence-based research and the teaching of reading, spelling and writing.


    With training that aligns with the science of reading, teachers can understand and teach the English spelling system for both reading and writing with confidence and success.
