What people are saying about Phono-Graphix

What parents have to say about Phono-Graphix

"...my highest recommendation! I've referred many other parents of children with learning disabilities and parents of children who want to give their children a solid foundation to reading and I've only heard very warm and thankful feedback."

"I have learned so many things from this program. I have 21 years of teaching experience, a K-12 Reading Endorsement through my Master's Degree and am Reading Recovery trained; however, I have learned so much about helping the at-risk reader (and all readers for that matter) understand how our language works in a matter-of-fact, hand-on way. My daughter had struggled in first grade and her school used this program with her. Within weeks she was caught up with everyone else, since she had changed schools and the expectations were much higher. The kids enjoy the activities, mastery becomes apparent and it is wonderful to see them use what they have learned in their reading. I found the examples in the training very helpful and am almost sorry it is over. What is not over is using Phono-Graphix as an intervention to the readers in our school who need to accelerate to reach the levels of their peers...I can see myself using this for many years to come! Thanks for thinking outside the box and providing materials for those kids who need a different way of learning!"

What teachers say about using Phono-Graphix in their classrooms

"Having been working with our adult students for almost an entire school year now using Reading Reflex, I am seeing the impact of the methodology and understand more than ever the necessity of so many other educators needing knowledge of an effective reading intervention and instruction technique."

Alexis Scranton, Atlanta, Georgia

"This course works quickly when used with students even in a group setting. Students become confident in skills quickly and the exercises keep them interested. There is plenty of opportunity to include positivity, which in turn builds the confidence that children depend upon to become great readers."

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

"This course is fantastic for anyone teaching reading. It brings the task back to basics, it cuts out all the complexities of spelling rules, long and short vowels, etc. etc., and gets straight to the task. Really worthwhile! Not only do I as a tutor find this beneficial, my most difficult reluctant readers are really progressing due to Phono-Graphix."

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

"I have been pleasantly surprised to see the quality of training available on-line. Once, I got through my doubts, I relaxed and was able to progress."

Rebecca Rodriguez, Houston, TX

"I very much enjoyed the self-pacing of the program. I was able to start the program in one school year, skip summer, and finish it the next...I'm thrilled that the information will always be available to me, and I'm discovering the resources on the Phono-Graphix member's site. Thank you for enabling me to extend my skills with such an amazing program. I can't wait to continue to dive in and help more kids."
