What people are saying about Phono-Graphix

What parents have to say about Phono-Graphix

"My 13 year old daughter suffered a traumatic brain injury in a car accident when she was 2. As a result, she has had difficulty reading. We have tried more than 10 phonics programs and a host of reading tutors. I was told by educational specialists to stop trying to improve my daughter's skills, and instead, set up accommodations, i.e. books on tape/voice recorder for the blind. My daughter and I traveled across the country to work with [a Phono-Graphix therapist] in a one-week intensive. I was amazed at the improvement in my daughter's skills and confidence after only one week. My daughter's confidence is boosted and her skills significantly enhanced. I would not have believed it if I had not witnessed it myself. The program is not a one-week fix, but it certainly has given us a running start. We will continue practicing the methods, and [our Phono-Graphix therapist] is available to answer questions. I believe she is genuinely interested in my daughter's progress. I cannot recommend the PhonoGraphix method highly enough."

"Our 8 year old nephew was having difficulties with reading. After reading such positive feedback regarding Phono-Graphix, our family decided to travel from Virginia to attend the one week Intensive course. He is making great progress with his reading. [Our Instructor] has made a difference not only with providing him with valuable tools to assist in his reading but teaching us (Aunt, Mom and Grandmom) how to continue further training."

What teachers say about using Phono-Graphix in their classrooms

"I love Phono-Graphix. It is easy to understand and even my illiterate students grasp it rather easily. Your program is the only one my students have felt successful with."

Sandy Freitas, California Department of Corrections

"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. "

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

"What I love about Phono-Graphix is that every student can benefit from it in one way or another. From Kindergarteners who would learn the "sound pictures" of sounds instead of being burdened with trying to remember the letter name of each word and the sound, to the 6th grader who is beginning to struggle with decoding multi-syllabic words that he encounters in his reading. Instead of teaching phonics rules which all have exceptions, Phono-Graphix teaches a logical way of approaching a word. For the older student, learning the "special endings" and the "dominant" syllable can be extremely helpful. For the younger student, learning that "sound pictures" can have multiple sounds, trying one and if that doesn’t look or sound right, try another sound picture. Phono-Graphix is the best program that encompasses the blending, segmenting and manipulation of sounds while the child is learning. There are no mistakes in Phono-Graphix, only learning situations as even mistakes are used as teaching tools."

"I've been using PG for over 15 years and I am thrilled with the way it has helped hundreds of children over the years in my classrooms alone. Fantastic program!!!"

Andrea Payne, Stockholm, Sweden

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

"The creators of Phono-Graphix truly understand how to teach reading and spelling, how children learn, and how to train teachers. I have taken this training to help me teach my children who are 18, 15, and 7 years old. I started teaching the Phono-Graphix method to my youngest when she was 4 years old. She has had to wait for me to learn how to teach better, but she has been reading since she was 4 because of the Phono-Graphix method of teaching to read. My 15 year old is actually a good reader, but struggled in certain areas that only the training was able to teach me how to help him. As a parent certifying as an instructor was worth it. I had read the Reading Reflex book, but the training is what helped me be confident in teaching Phono-Graphix to all my children."

Lydia Bidwell, Arizona

"This is an excellent course. I could feel my confidence building as I implemented the lessons with the students that I tutor. The instruction, research, and video lessons demonstrating the corrective techniques were extremely helpful. I always felt like I knew how to help my students progress. I highly recommend this course and the Phono-Graphix method."
