Phono-Graphix for Teachers
The Phono-Graphix method gives key reading instruction and intervention for every child, with proven results.
As a blueprint for literacy instruction and how children learn best, Phono-Graphix is remarkably flexible, allowing teachers to address the full range of students in any number of educational environments.
As a clinical intervention, Phono-Graphix has been proven to effect cognitive changes in the brain and is 98% effective at helping children ages 6-16 to reach grade level reading, including those diagnosed with learning disabilities.
From very young students first learning to read, to stumbling or failing students who are frustrated and hopeless, Phono-Graphix gives teachers the tools for quickly diagnosing students’ needs. It efficiently addresses the essential reading skills of decoding, encoding, auditory processing, code knowledge, and sequencing, through whole class or small group instruction or one-on-one sessions.

What teachers say about Phono-Graphix
"I enjoy Phono-Graphix as much as my students. The children have really responded positively to the program with such comments as, "Can I keep working?", "I can write so many words now", "This is fun!". It's nice to see that both teachers and children had an equal amount of fun!"
Marilyn, Kindergarten teacher at Stockholm International School
"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
"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. "
Jodi C., Bryn Athyn, PA
"The Phono-Graphix program has been a great educational tool. I am a Montessori Early Childhood teacher and the idea of teaching the sound instead of the letter name went hand-in-hand. Many of the variations and extensions of the lessons were already things that I had in my classroom. Even if I didn't have a Montessori background, the program would have been extremely easy to follow and implement."
