What people are saying about Phono-Graphix

What parents have to say about Phono-Graphix

"This course has been unspeakably useful. As a reading instructor and a member of a family with an autistic boy and an ADD/dyslexic boy, the concept that letters are pictures of sounds has been like an awakening!"

A. Herring, Chino Hills, CA

"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."

What teachers say about using Phono-Graphix in their classrooms

"I have been teaching reading since 1979 when I received my M.Ed. from Lesley University. Over the years, I have been trained in Orton-Gillingham, Wilson and Project Read. This is without a doubt the best reading program I have ever used. It moves quickly, enabling the students to build a base of letter/sound knowledge much faster than the other programs and does not require the memorization of terms or phonics rules. I highly recommend it!"

Deborah Sharples, Middleburg, VA

"I teach first and second grade students, often in a pull-out small group setting. [Phono-Graphix] is a great introduction for emergent readers. [Students] love to work with the picture and letter cards, sounding the letters and spelling the words. I clip the picture and the letters together, to easily "toss" a new word across the table. As soon as they figure out the word, they call it out and get another. They also love to play "phoneme manipulation" (a word I teach them, to impress them with what it is they are learning to do). I spell the first word on the card, then they take turns changing one sound to make the new word. It is a great skill-building activity. Never a year goes by that I don't use Phono-Graphix. "

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

"I have thoroughly enjoyed the course and developed a lot of confidence in my abilities to identify reading and and spelling problems. I can better understand why dyslexic children have such difficulty but know that I can help effectively with my new Phono-Graphix tools. The course has been useful but help and encouragement form other teachers and experts who use the scheme makes it come alive and make sense.I am looking forward to developing my expertise and effectiveness. Many thanks!"

A. Elliman, Surrey, UK

"This course has been informative and fun. I have enjoyed working through the instruction and the videos. The examples of real life one-on-one instruction is my favorite part. I have been working through the program with my niece, and I have been amazed at her progress. I am looking forward to working with more students and seeing the amazing progress in their reading also."

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

"This course has been extremely informative and practical in helping me understand the nature of the code and how to teach it effectively to students. I am so glad that I found this course so that I could teach my own children to read and now be able to help other children to read in clinical practice or in a public school setting. I highly recommend this course!"

Christen Mengel, Shillington, PA

"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!"
