What people are saying about Phono-Graphix

What parents have to say about Phono-Graphix

"As a parent, I wanted to thank you for creating such an affordable and fantastic book to teach reading. I purchased the book based on a recommendation during a training. My son, was in first grade, and he had not progressed in reading. It was becoming frustration and overwhelming. Once I started the program with him, last summer, he has made significant progress with his reading, despite his several disabilities. Among his diagnosis is oral-motor dyspraxia, ADHA, and dyslexia. He had made so much progress in the one summer, that I forced the school to continue using the program with him during the school year. The school had started him with Orton-gillingham, however, it was so language intensive, he was getting overwhelmed and confused. This program is so simple and direct that it can help any child. So, as a parent, thank you! As an educator, I hope to eventually convince my school district to pay for me to get the certification in the 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

"When I began to pull a small group of 3rd grades students at an international school in Europe, where most of the students spoke english as a second and third language, they were all struggling with not only code knowledge, but also segmenting. They did not enjoy reading, and were very poor spellers. After eight months of only one hour a week of Phono-Graphix, all six students have been mainstreamed back into their third grade language classes. Their spelling has improved tremendously, and all six of them have shared how much they now love to read now. The classroom teacher is amazed at their progress, and the International School is now going to adopt Phono-Graphix as its reading curriculum."

Andrea P, Stockholm International School

"Phonographix has been a wonderful program for my students. Introducing multiple representations of sounds was most helpful. It helped my kindergarteners learn sound pictures more quickly and be more fluid in their sound switching while thinking about what makes sense. I would highly recommend the program."

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 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!"

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

"It's great to be able to have an online course with such comprehensive information and assignments to support the process. The email support was friendly and efficient. Many thanks."

D. Kronenberg, Salisbury, UK

"The course was excellent! The guided tour of this unique approach to teaching students how to read was well orchestrated to provide maximum exposure to concepts and techniques that can be used directly with students. I am looking forward to applying what I have learned. Thanks!"
