Do-IT Profiler has developed as a consequence of many factors, including more than 20 years of research and practice in the field of SpLD by its founders. Many of our clients have asked us about the background behind Do-IT Profiler, whilst others look to understand the field better as part of their continuing professional development.

Below are a series of publications authored and co-authored by members of the Do-IT ‎Profiler team. In addition, links to a series of related webinars are also provided.‎ Together they show the depth of research and development that underpins Do-IT Profiler, and helps explain why it is widely accepted as being a “state-of-the-art” tool, not just in terms of technology but also in assessment and service delivery.

Wherever possible, a link has been given to the full article. Where the publication is not available only, key articles are linked to their abstracts.
