    Hi all
    Im after some advice from you wonderful people. We are at a point where we want to choose a new literacy intervention. We currently use FFT but don't seem to be getting to results for the amount of money we are spending.
    We are now looking into ELS, reading recover or Precision teaching ( I know this can be use for maths as well) Have you got any experience of these? which would you recommend?
    ( senco)

    Precision teaching all the way. Depending on your setting look at the 5 minute boxes too

    Programmes based on whole language and multicueing approaches fostering guessing (rather than decoding) have been widely discredited by current scientific evidence, as best explained by the International Foundation for Effective Reading Instruction. The Position Statement by Learning Difficulties Australia has listed the programmes which they recommend (and those that they don't) with corresponding explanation. The Spelfabet blog, run by a speech pathlogist, also has a list of recommended classroom resources which you can peruse to see would work best in your context.
