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

"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 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."

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

"It was a great course to do to help teachers like myself understand a way to teach students who have difficulty reading and spelling. I enjoyed how it was broken down to different levels and it was flexible enough that they overlapped each other in reference for the child's needs. It was a great learning experience."

Nicole Tanjutco, Potomac, MD

"I have really enjoyed learning the Phono-Graphix method of teaching students to be better readers and spellers. The program has allowed me to help students connect with reading and better understand the reading/spelling process."

Kathy Gibson, Sun Valley, ID
