Understanding Spelling Research Report

This three year project (1995 – 98) on children’s spelling development was funded by the Mercers’ Company and conducted by Olivia O’Sullivan and Anne Thomas of the Centre for Language in Primary Education.

A book (Understanding Spelling) giving a full account of the project and its implications for schools was published by CLPE in 2000.

Copies of Understanding Spelling can be purchased from Routledge
