A leading expert in literacy development has brought an innovative learning package to Mansfield’s Vision Studio School.

Dr Colin Lane, who has appeared on the BBC’s Tomorrow’s World, pioneered his multi-sensory technique in 1974, and was designed to dramatically improve spelling, grammar and literacy.

He presented the project to tutors at Vision Studio School, on Chesterfield Road South, which caters for 14 to 19-year-olds, with a view to the system being rolled out to all of its students.

The package, known as ARROW – which stands for Aural, Read, Respond, Oral, Write – teaches students to improve their skills, by recording their own voice and listening back.
