What people are saying about Phono-Graphix

What parents have to say about Phono-Graphix

"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."

"My son and I attended for the one week intensive program. It was well worth it! My son is 7 and was a very discouraged little boy when it came to reading and eventually all of school. He has struggled with reading and recently was diagnosed LD. We just followed [the instructor's] lead and he was making progress after the first day... the results are amazing! He is smiling and laughing while reading stories to me and not crying anymore!!"

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

"I love Phono-Graphix! I am a retired teacher, and Phono-Graphix helped me help so many students learn to read."

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 was valuable to learn about the Phono-Graphix method after hearing about it for several years. The method seems especially useful as an intervention for students who are having difficulty "breaking the code" of reading, and the course offers ways to assess students and use the assessment to design an intervention for each student. It was useful to be able to do the course online. I believe I got just about as much, or perhaps even more, out of it by doing it online as I would have in an in-person class."

Catherine Lawler, Silver Spring, MD

"I loved this course! I feel for me as a SLP it's the missing piece for teaching kids how to decode. I appreciated that Erin took the time to provide feedback after the Pink, Blue, and Purple assignments. Her insights and suggestions were invaluable."
