Members Library

The SPELD SA library is for the benefit of the SPELD SA Members. The Library holds reference books and resource material for tutors, teachers and parents to assist with the education of students with specific learning difficulties.

You will find a large range of decodable readers to support an explicit synthetic phonics approach to teaching reading, including catch-up readers for older learners.

An extended Reference Library for use on premise only is located in the conference space at SPELD SA. This area contains journals, reference books, resources and phonics kits for viewing on site.
