Get Certified in Phono-Graphix!

Our practitioners make a difference in thousands of children's lives every day - in classrooms, clinics, pull-out and RTI programs, bilingual and ESL programs, Waldorf and Montessori schools, pre-schools, home-schools, speech and language pathology practices, volunteer literacy projects and adult literacy programs

Our Phono-Graphix certification courses are designed to show you exactly how to replicate the results achieved at the Read America Clinic in Orlando, Florida, reported in the Orton Annals of Dyslexia and other clinical studies. The Orton Annals of Dyslexia study included 87 children ages six to sixteen, 44% of whom were previously diagnosed as learning disabled. In a twelve hour remedial course, 98% of the children reached grade level reading. The remaining 2% simply needed additional time in therapy. Remediation time averaged only twelve hours. Average gains were just over two years in real word reading and four years in nonsense word reading (decoding). In subsequent work at the clinic, the shortest time in which a client was remediated was six hours and the longest time was 36 hours.

Our courses will prepare you to teach new and emerging readers and to remediate reading problems at any age or ability, clinically one-on-one, in small groups and in classroom settings.

As a certified Phono-Graphix practitioner, you will be eligible to join the professional Phono-Graphix Association of Reading Therapists, allowing you to get exclusive offers, network, interact, and reach out to thousands of potential clients through our website.

Train Online

Over 1.300 teachers and parents have trained online!

In our online course animated sample students provide you with composite personalities, constructed from the years of experience of the program developers. Real students come to life, with real personalities, real auditory processing deficits, poor code knowledge, and a mixed bag of bad strategies. Students Annabel, Donny, and Fiona make all the mistakes participants will typically need to handle in their clinics and classrooms. The program developers appear with appropriate outtakes so that participants get the most out of the students's errors and the Phono-Graphix error correction techniques. Imagine that you could peek in a window and watch one of the program developers giving a lesson. Now you can! You will feel like you know the program developers when you've completed the course, like they led you by the hand through the nature of the code, the nature of the learner, and all the subtleties that make Phono-Graphix the most effective reading program ever used.

Work at your own pace - log on from home, school, or work, and take as long as you wish to complete the course, or you can do it in as fast as ten days if your pace is quick and you have the time to dedicate to it.

It's affordable - our online course is affordably priced, you won't have to worry about travel and lodging, and do not have to miss work to complete it.

It's easy and effective: Online participants can review lectures and demonstrations over and over and at their convenience, and demonstrations are much closer-in than in a large training venue. Participants go through the entire program with a student or students of their own, and can easily ask questions in the course or email the instructor(s) or program developers directly.

Course fee is $830 per person and includes a full kit of instructional materials for working with your students, and shipping within the United States. Substantial discounts are available for groups of 5 or more!

Read what some of our online trainees have to say:

"I found the course to be informative and worthwhile. I was frequently reminded that the best way to grasp each concept was to actually present the lessons to students. The more I dug in, the more I learned. It took me much longer to complete the course than I originally thought. I was glad that I was able to pace myself."

Michele Sanguinetti, Scotts Valley, California

"This online training course is wonderful! I have taken online classes and trainings in other areas and they pale in comparison to this one. The use of sounds, cartoons, videos, and other media (i.e. articles) keeps it very interesting!"

Kira Hughes-Rivera, San Diego, California

"I am very pleased with the amount of clarification I have received from taking this course. As a trained reading recovery teacher and EMPOWER Reading and Spelling trained teacher, I have learned so much and believe that this way of teaching would be very effective for any child. The phono-graphix method is excellent for struggling readers because of the way the lessons unfold and the amount of engagement that is promoted in every session. Students must be involved in the sessions which will only enhance their learning and help them to take ownership of their reading and spelling. I also like all the available resources on the website. The students I have worked with have made a lot of progress. I look forward to continuing to become better and better at my instruction so that I can help many children gain confidence in their ability to become independent readers and enjoy reading!"

Perri Nantais, Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario

"Taking this training course has been a positive and extremely beneficial endeavor. I have had the opportunity to learn more about my students and I feel strongly that they have benefited greatly from the process as well. I am excited to share my love of Phono-Graphix with my colleagues in hopes that they will start to implement it in the classroom."

Heather Town, Sun Valley, Idaho
