Spalding Education Australia cultivates the most comprehensive and effective method for teaching English in the world.

The Spalding Method, as taught in The Writing Road to Reading program, has been used to teach children to read, write, and spell since 1957. It wholly integrates explicit, sequential, systematic and multisensory teaching in:
