What is LETRS?

LETRS® (Language Essentials for Teachers of Reading and Spelling) is professional development that provides the foundational knowledge necessary to understand how students learn to read, write, and spell—and why some struggle. Through LETRS, educators gain a deeper understanding of language structure and how to help struggling readers.
