What people are saying about Phono-Graphix

What parents have to say about Phono-Graphix

"I am very happy that I was able to take this certification curriculum. I learned so much about myself and the written language. I would recommend that when possible, you use actual students to complete your online assignments. I found that I learned much more when I worked with students rather than adults. Kids have a way of coming up with questions and ideas that adults don't even think about. They are very creative and full of insight. I learned more about errors and error correction when working with students than when teaching a lesson to an adult. I was fortunate to be able to study and learn this curriculum as my youngest child was just diagnosed with dyslexia. This curriculum has helped me understand how my chid is processing words and how I can help them. It was nice to have a child at home who could help me with my homework. It was a great way to get them to practice decoding without feeling like they were doing homework. I can see the progress their reading already. I can't wait to be able to apply what I have learned to future reading groups."

"As a parent, I wanted to thank you for creating such an affordable and fantastic book to teach reading. I purchased the book based on a recommendation during a training. My son, was in first grade, and he had not progressed in reading. It was becoming frustration and overwhelming. Once I started the program with him, last summer, he has made significant progress with his reading, despite his several disabilities. Among his diagnosis is oral-motor dyspraxia, ADHA, and dyslexia. He had made so much progress in the one summer, that I forced the school to continue using the program with him during the school year. The school had started him with Orton-gillingham, however, it was so language intensive, he was getting overwhelmed and confused. This program is so simple and direct that it can help any child. So, as a parent, thank you! As an educator, I hope to eventually convince my school district to pay for me to get the certification in the program."

What teachers say about using Phono-Graphix in their classrooms

"I think the information in this course is going to be extremely useful as I prepare to put the program into full effect next year with my students. I have been able to coach my teachers through a soft implementation of the program this year as they too are currently enrolled in the program. I also look forward to utilizing the teaching technique with my own son. The most beneficial aspect of this program is the hands on approach to learning the code. Students are actively engaged in learning and this was extremely helpful with my most struggling readers this year."

Danielle Ciallella, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

"Phonographix has been a wonderful program for my students. Introducing multiple representations of sounds was most helpful. It helped my kindergarteners learn sound pictures more quickly and be more fluid in their sound switching while thinking about what makes sense. I would highly recommend the program."

What certified practitioners say about using Phono-Graphix in thier clinical practices, home-schooling, tutoring and more

"This course is fantastic for anyone teaching reading. It brings the task back to basics, it cuts out all the complexities of spelling rules, long and short vowels, etc. etc., and gets straight to the task. Really worthwhile! Not only do I as a tutor find this beneficial, my most difficult reluctant readers are really progressing due to Phono-Graphix."

O. McDaid, Strabane, Northern Ireland

"I took the certification course a year ago and have used Phono-Graphix with my emergent readers to high schoolers everyday since. I love it and it’s been truly life-changing for so many of our clients. I've taught so many children to read (and love reading) with Phono-Graphix. It's even worked with children with global delays, who people just assumed would never read. It just takes longer."

Chris Hwang, M.A., CCC-SLP, Bethesda, Maryland

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

"A great course, very worthwhile as you learn much more than you could do on your own just reading the Reading Reflex book. Thank you!"

C. Tuasikal, Jakarta, Indonesia

"I am a retired, pre-K Montessori teacher. I also have dyslexia and ADHD. I have always dreamed of starting a tutoring business for older children with alternative learning styles. I believed it was unattainable. This online course has proven invaluable. The individual attention I have received, has been extensive, positive and prompt. Thank you, Erin Duncan, for all you have done for me. You are an amazing women. I have recently launched my tutoring business, and work with several children, ages 5-9! In the near future, I will offer Phono-Graphix tutoring for teenagers and adults, with the help from ’Silver Lining’ kit and support book."
