What people are saying about Phono-Graphix

What parents have to say about Phono-Graphix

"My 13 year old daughter suffered a traumatic brain injury in a car accident when she was 2. As a result, she has had difficulty reading. We have tried more than 10 phonics programs and a host of reading tutors. I was told by educational specialists to stop trying to improve my daughter's skills, and instead, set up accommodations, i.e. books on tape/voice recorder for the blind. My daughter and I traveled across the country to work with [a Phono-Graphix therapist] in a one-week intensive. I was amazed at the improvement in my daughter's skills and confidence after only one week. My daughter's confidence is boosted and her skills significantly enhanced. I would not have believed it if I had not witnessed it myself. The program is not a one-week fix, but it certainly has given us a running start. We will continue practicing the methods, and [our Phono-Graphix therapist] is available to answer questions. I believe she is genuinely interested in my daughter's progress. I cannot recommend the PhonoGraphix method highly enough."

"I am very happy that I was able to take this certification curriculum. I learned so much about myself and the written language. I would recommend that when possible, you use actual students to complete your online assignments. I found that I learned much more when I worked with students rather than adults. Kids have a way of coming up with questions and ideas that adults don't even think about. They are very creative and full of insight. I learned more about errors and error correction when working with students than when teaching a lesson to an adult. I was fortunate to be able to study and learn this curriculum as my youngest child was just diagnosed with dyslexia. This curriculum has helped me understand how my chid is processing words and how I can help them. It was nice to have a child at home who could help me with my homework. It was a great way to get them to practice decoding without feeling like they were doing homework. I can see the progress their reading already. I can't wait to be able to apply what I have learned to future reading groups."

What teachers say about using Phono-Graphix in their classrooms

"Phono-Graphix makes sense. This year I have used it to teach my kindergarten students as well as first, second, and third grade students who have needed remediation. It's easy to present the lessons to all levels of learners. I find that the students are able to progress through each level with ease, and they enjoy that the program is interactive. Other programs I have used have not had a writing component. Sounding out each sound as it is written has made a huge difference in my students' ability to correctly spell words."

Michele Sanguinetti, Scotts Valley, California

"I have seen real progress with my students. Thank you so much."

What certified practitioners say about using Phono-Graphix in thier clinical practices, home-schooling, tutoring and more

"What I love about Phono-Graphix is that every student can benefit from it in one way or another. From Kindergarteners who would learn the "sound pictures" of sounds instead of being burdened with trying to remember the letter name of each word and the sound, to the 6th grader who is beginning to struggle with decoding multi-syllabic words that he encounters in his reading. Instead of teaching phonics rules which all have exceptions, Phono-Graphix teaches a logical way of approaching a word. For the older student, learning the "special endings" and the "dominant" syllable can be extremely helpful. For the younger student, learning that "sound pictures" can have multiple sounds, trying one and if that doesn’t look or sound right, try another sound picture. Phono-Graphix is the best program that encompasses the blending, segmenting and manipulation of sounds while the child is learning. There are no mistakes in Phono-Graphix, only learning situations as even mistakes are used as teaching tools."

Mary Calvert, Alexandria, VA

"I've been using this program for children with learning disabilities for the past 10 years and it has yielded 100% success rate with all of my students. I've received many appreciative feedback from my students' parents. I am glad I was introduced to this program by my former employer/mentor. I want to take this opportunity to thank the author/creator and all involved in the Phono-Graphix Reading Company."

What students have to say about being taught using Phono-Graphix

"Phono-Graphix not only helped me to read, but also helped me pass my driving test! Because PG is so visual, I found it easy to remember the symbols in the driving book. My driving instructor said I was the ONLY person they had taught who knew EVERY road sign. Thank you Phono-Graphix!"

What our trainees say about our course

"The course was well organized, with plenty of additional information in the form of articles to further enhance material covered in the various segments. The demonstrations of implementing Phono-Graphix were hugely helpful and enable me to develop a really good understanding of this instructional program. Phono-Graphix isn't just a tool for children to learn how to read, it is THE tool that ensures every child's success in reading."

C. Carlson, Calgary, Alberta

"This course was so beneficial for my students!"
