SPELD SA LibraryThe SPELD SA library holds reference books and resource material for tutors, classroom teachers and parents to assist with the education of students with specific learning difficulties. We have a large range of decodable readers to support an explicit synthetic phonics approach to teaching reading, including catch-up readers for older learners.

An additional Reference Library is located in the conference space at SPELD SA. This area contains journals, reference books, resources and phonics kits for viewing on site. Please note that items in the Reference Library are not able to be borrowed.
