Remote Instruction of Language and Literacy

The Remote Instruction of Language and Literacy (RILL) project is designed and run by researchers at the School of Psychology, and the Miles Dyslexia Centre at Bangor University. It comprises a short language and literacy programme for Key Stage 2 children, and was launched in response to the Covid-19 pandemic and resulting national lockdown in April 2020. Our mission is to ensure that children can continue to receive the best possible literacy tuition during school closures, and to rapidly regain literacy skills once schools reopen.

We are funded by the Economic and Social Research Council and by the Welsh Government. So far, our curriculum has been delivered to over 200 children in England and Wales.
