Get Certified in Phono-Graphix!

Our practitioners make a difference in thousands of children's lives every day - 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

Our Phono-Graphix certification courses are designed to show you exactly how to replicate the results achieved at the Read America Clinic in Orlando, Florida, reported in the Orton Annals of Dyslexia and other clinical studies. The Orton Annals of Dyslexia study included 87 children ages six to sixteen, 44% of whom were previously diagnosed as learning disabled. In a twelve hour remedial course, 98% of the children reached grade level reading. The remaining 2% needed additional time in therapy. Remediation time averaged only twelve hours. Average gains were just over two years in real word reading and four years in nonsense word reading (decoding). In subsequent work at the clinic, the shortest time in which a client was remediated was six hours and the longest time was 36 hours.

Our courses will prepare you to teach new and emerging readers and to remediate reading problems at any age or ability, clinically one-on-one, in small groups and in classroom settings.

As a certified Phono-Graphix practitioner, you will be eligible to join the professional Phono-Graphix Association of Reading Therapists, allowing you to get exclusive offers, network, interact, and reach out to thousands of potential clients through our website.

Train Online

Over 800 teachers and parents have trained online!

In our online course animated sample students provide you with composite personalities, constructed from the years of experience of the program developers. Real students come to life, with real personalities, real auditory processing deficits, poor code knowledge, and a mixed bag of bad strategies. Students Annabel, Donny, and Fiona make all the mistakes participants will typically need to handle in their clinics and classrooms. The program developers appear with appropriate outtakes so that participants get the most out of the students's errors and the Phono-Graphix error correction techniques. Imagine that you could peek in a window and watch one of the program developers giving a lesson. Now you can! You will feel like you know the program developers when you've completed the course, like they led you by the hand through the nature of the code, the nature of the learner, and all the subtleties that make Phono-Graphix the most effective reading program ever used.

Work at your own pace - log on from home, school, or work, and take as long as you wish to complete the course, or you can do it in as fast as ten days if your pace is quick and you have the time to dedicate to it.

It's affordable - our online course is affordably priced, you won't have to worry about travel and lodging, and do not have to miss work to complete it.

It's easy and effective: Online participants can review lectures and demonstrations over and over and at their convenience, and demonstrations are much closer-in than in a large training venue. Participants go through the entire program with a student or students of their own, and can easily ask questions in the course question and answer board or email the instructor(s) or program developers directly.

Course fee is $795 per person and includes a full kit of instructional materials for working with your students, plus shipping. Substantial discounts are available for groups of 5 or more!

Read what some of our online trainees have to say:

"This is a really great course. Phono-Graphix is like the missing link, in the foundation of learning to read. It teaches learners how to 'crack the code' of the sound-symbol correspondence in reading. The lessons are practical, and clearly structured, not rule-based. Lessons give the learner hands-on experience and practise, in getting inside words, blending sounds together for meaning, manipulating sounds to navigate the different ways of writing sounds in English as well as how to tackle multi-syllable words. This method works well with adults too. Doing the course online means I have been able to work with students as I have progressed through the course at my own pace, with terrific tutor help and support by email. I thoroughly recommend it!"

Liz Newlands, Alberta, Canada

"I really enjoyed this course. It made me think differently about the fundamental skills of reading. I especially enjoyed the different approaches in helping students decode words. The English language is a challenging language with a bunch of rules that don't always apply. This allowed my students to attack words in a more productive way!"

Julia Clements, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

"The Phono-Graphix Course has been very informative and helpful in educating me on how to teach struggling readers to decode successfully. I have been using it regularly with the students I work with and the results are there to see. There's been guidance and support along the way whenever I've needed it. I would recommend this to both teachers and parents."

Deepali Pandya-Rao, Support Services Coordinator for The American International School of Muscat, Sultanate of Oman

"The course has been very informative and helpful in my effective teaching of my 1st grade classes. I highly recommend it to my other colleagues, to other schools, and to any educator that needs to focus on the unconditional concepts involved with our students solving words and reading fluently."

Chris Jackson, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
