The Phono-Graphix® Reading Instruction and Intervention Program gives

parents, students, and teachers the tools they need to open the door to literacy

The Phono-Graphix reading method has been proven 98% effective at addressing reading problems at any age or ability level. Phono-Graphix is research-based, developmentally appropriate, simple, concrete, and affordable. Our powerful intervention program addresses the fundamental skills of decoding, encoding, auditory processing, code knowledge, and sequencing.

Welcome!

The Phono-Graphix Reading Method is a phonetic-linguistic approach to teaching reading, based upon extensive clinical experience with children and rigorous research in the fields of reading, cognitive psychology, learning theory, child development, motivation theory and linguistics.

Phono-Graphix is remarkably straightforward and sensible, encouraging its popularity among teachers and parents since 1993. It has been successfully utilized in classrooms, clinics, pull-out and RTI programs, bilingual and ESL programs, Waldorf and Montessori schools, pre-schools, home-schools, speech and language pathology practices, volunteer literacy projects and adult literacy programs.

What makes Phono-Graphix unique?

Phono-Graphix 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, and phoneme manipulation.

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.

Because our clientele are children, the program is taught in keeping with the way children learn, through paired association embedded in engaging and straightforward lessons.

Phono-Graphix is not based on nor an extension of any other method, theory, or book. Phono-Graphix does not fit into conventional definitions of phonics and we do not consider it a phonics program, but rather a new paradigm in reading instruction based on the true nature of the English written code.
