About the Method

2013 Marked our 20th Year of Service to Children ~ We look forward to another 20 years of providing children with the opportunity to enjoy a lifetime of literacy and learning.

A letter from Carmen McGuinness posted on January 2, 2014

Phono-Graphix is remarkably straightforward and sensible,

encouraging its popularity among teachers and parents since 1993.
  • Content is based on the nature of the English code as described by linguists.
    • Instruction progresses from the sound to the symbol.
  • Lessons employ the requisite three skills to access such a code, as understood within the field of neuroscience:
    • segmenting, blending, phoneme manipulation. 
  • Because our clientele are children, the above is taught in keeping with the way children learn; 
    • through paired association embedded in engaging and straightforward lessons. 
  • Lessons are errorless. 
    • Every response which doesn't produce a meaningful answer becomes a highly teachable moment which does.
  • Memory networks are laid down through multiple bidirectional instruction:
    • sound to symbol/symbol to sound, and
    • each response is reinforced by accuracy.
