Read Write Spell Advances the Science of Reading.
All of our work is based in the science of reading– how the brain learns to read. Our approach, rooted in brain research, has been proven to be more effective for more children than traditional approaches to reading.
We believe that, with proper instruction, all children can learn to read.

We leverage the power of community volunteers to provide free, long-term, one-to-one reading instruction to Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools (WS/FCS) students who struggle with literacy skills.
The K-1 Foundations program provides instruction in phonological and phonemic awareness, listening comprehension, and letter formation to kindergarten and first-grade students in order to prevent literacy struggles in later grades.
