What parents have to say about Phono-Graphix


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!

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.

Our 8 year old nephew was having difficulties with reading. After reading such positive feedback regarding Phono-Graphix, our family decided to travel from Virginia to attend the one week Intensive course. He is making great progress with his reading. [Our Instructor] has made a difference not only with providing him with valuable tools to assist in his reading but teaching us (Aunt, Mom and Grandmom) how to continue further training.

By far the most efficient and effective reading program I have encountered. I became familiar with Phono-Graphix and used it in the early 2000's in order to help my children learn to read. I have used this program since as a literacy therapist/Speech Language Assistant in schools periodically ever since, and am now revisiting it and officially completing the certification process. As some who loves sounds and building phonological awareness skills, I continue to be in love with this program and what it stands for. It has stood the test of time as being the most effective, efficient, and engaging way to work on reading and ultimately writing skills. It is flexible and capable of helping all ranges of ages, needs, and abilities....all in one, and all in context. I can't say enough about this program, even after all of these years.

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.

Sarine Tan, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Thank you for helping me to help my special students. Every time I battled with their reading demons, I knew there had to be a better method to teach reading than the one I was using. I had tried every conceivable way to teach reading to both special needs children and children in regular schools. In the past, I have used a combination of Phonics, Sight Reading and Whole Language approach with numerous reading schemes. However, something was always missing. But now, at long last, I have found the missing link in the form of Phono-Graphix. Doing this course online, allowed me plenty of time to practice and use what I was learning as I went along. As a result, I felt very confident that I was doing the right thing because I saw the results right before my eyes as I practiced with my students. Not only were my students improving in their reading, they were also beginning to make sense of their spellings. I would not hesitate to recommend this excellent course to any teacher who is serious about teaching reading both in a class setting and remedially. In my opinion, Phono-Graphix is the answer to all parents and teachers prayers.

R. Juma, Special Needs Teacher, Dubai, UAE

Thank you for the creation of a phonics curriculum that a teacher can use!! I have been teaching for 30 years, and there is not any curriculum on the market that is as thorough as Phono-Graphix. Also, the sequence that you present each skill is correct! Thank you for helping our young children learn how to read!!

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


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.

Gemma Sehmi, Paphos, Cyprus

This program has served me well for the last fifteen years. I really enjoy working with students that have varying learning differences. I presently have two students diagnosed with functioning autism. This is very gratifying as they really appreciate the code. It gives them something to 'hang their hat on', so to speak. Please know that I am a sincere advocate of the Phono-Graphix program.

What our trainees say about our course


I really enjoyed this course. It made me think differently about the fundamental skills of reading. I especially enjoyed the different approaches in helping students decode words. The English language is a challenging language with a bunch of rules that don't always apply. This allowed my students to attack words in a more productive way!

Julia Clements, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

This course has been very informative, interesting and fun. I have enjoyed working through the instruction and the videos. I have been working through the program with my 8 year old daughter and I have been amazed at her progress. She became confident in skills quickly and the exercises kept her interested. I liked the sequence of the way the course present each skill. I am looking forward to working with more students and seeing the amazing progress in their reading.
