What people are saying about Phono-Graphix

What parents have to say about Phono-Graphix

"I used Reading Reflex with my son for months, but the program has given me so much more than I expected. This method makes sense and our children NEED a reading program that isn't confusing. Since I homeschool my three boys it took me longer than I thought to get through the assignments, but that is the beauty of your course... being able to work at your own pace. My son is reading at grade level and I have a new career opportunity that will work with my schedule. Thanks for offering this program! "

"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

"I am the academic coordinator of Brindavan Education Trust, a learning a in Bangalore, India. We are a registered not-for-profit organization. We mainly cater to the education needs of children who are not able to cope with the rigors and pace of mainstream schools. The book Reading Reflex is a treasure trove for us. We use the methods and strategies explained in it with many of our students who struggle with picking up the basic skill of reading."

Rajani Padmanabhan, Bangalor, India

"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 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

"For over 15 years Phono-Graphix has been a big part of my life. It makes learning to read fun and simple. I have used Phono-Graphix with children and adults of all nationalities and abilities. I cannot explain how rewarding it feels to teach using Phono-Graphix and see improvements in reading as early as the first lesson! My most memorable student - a lady who had suffered a stroke. She had to learn to read and write again, and Phono-Graphix made that so easy for her. "

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 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."

Liza Yore, para-educator, Woodinville, Washington

"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!"
