It provides resources for children to apply and practise their reading skills.
While working with students who needed additional support, Maureen Pollard realised there was a need for explicit and sequential phonemic awareness and phonics teaching in Australian classrooms. When she helped teachers change their approach and pedagogy, the overall literacy results improved drastically ... and Learning Logic was born.
Starting in 1995 as a small publisher and educational consultancy, we've since extended our range of resources and services to meet a growing demand. The hands-on work we do with children, teachers and parents helps us see what's needed and, combined with evidence-based research, we create practical multi-sensory resources.

Sandy and I have an interest in learning Spanish and in class one day my ears pricked up when Sandy explained in Spanish how he had developed an App called Aussie Audio Slang. Well, the rest is history. Check out Sandy's blog.
