The All Aboard Learning team HQ is in Oxford, UK. We have been working in literacy research around the world since 2008. Until 2021 we were Oxford Learning Solutions, but changed name with the launch of the All Aboard Phonics suite of resources.
Our research basis is detailed here.
Most of our own research has been done with struggling readers, through intervention work using our Easyread System. The Easyread System is a tool we created to do research while helping children. We have worked individually with each of the children to map their journey.
By developing a deep understanding of the cause of difficulty for each child and testing different solutions, we have developed some unique tools for the learn-to-read journey.
Our research process involved helping over 15,000 struggling readers. The success rate with those learners has risen slowly to well over 99%. Have a look through the sort of testimonials we have received on Facebook from the teachers and parents of those children.
All of that acquired knowledge has now gone into the All Aboard Phonics resources being used by schools around the world.
All of our tools are based within the systematic synthetic phonics family of methodology, but we have extended what is possible with phonics. Traditionally around a third of children struggle a lot with phonics and 15% never crack it. We have reduced that to zero in many classrooms.
In our experience, if you can speak the language and see the text clearly, you can learn to read.
During our research we identified 9 main causes of reading difficulty. Each cause of difficulty has a neurological basis, which we can explain to you. You can do one of our training courses to learn about them.
All of our resources have an understanding of those 9 main causes of reading difficulty built into their learn-to-read processes. That is how we can achieve our mission of 100% success for the children in each class.
