What people are saying about Phono-Graphix

What parents have to say about Phono-Graphix

"I have learned so many things from this program. I have 21 years of teaching experience, a K-12 Reading Endorsement through my Master's Degree and am Reading Recovery trained; however, I have learned so much about helping the at-risk reader (and all readers for that matter) understand how our language works in a matter-of-fact, hand-on way. My daughter had struggled in first grade and her school used this program with her. Within weeks she was caught up with everyone else, since she had changed schools and the expectations were much higher. The kids enjoy the activities, mastery becomes apparent and it is wonderful to see them use what they have learned in their reading. I found the examples in the training very helpful and am almost sorry it is over. What is not over is using Phono-Graphix as an intervention to the readers in our school who need to accelerate to reach the levels of their peers...I can see myself using this for many years to come! Thanks for thinking outside the box and providing materials for those kids who need a different way of learning!"

"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."

"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."

"I am a parent of three children, two of which struggled tremendously breaking the code to reading, particularly my 10 year old. We tried private tutors, and a myriad of programs until Phono-Graphix was introduced by a speech and language therapist. It has been the only approach to reading that has helped our child. Many thanks for creating this brilliant and logical program that is accessible to professionals and parents."

P. Nashman, Toronto, Ontario

"My son and I attended for the one week intensive program. It was well worth it! My son is 7 and was a very discouraged little boy when it came to reading and eventually all of school. He has struggled with reading and recently was diagnosed LD. We just followed [the instructor's] lead and he was making progress after the first day... the results are amazing! He is smiling and laughing while reading stories to me and not crying anymore!!"

"[Our instructor] has been working with our 11 year old son. His grades have greatly improved on reading and comprehension. Lately, she has been working with him more on writing, and his last report card showed great improvement!"

"...my highest recommendation! I've referred many other parents of children with learning disabilities and parents of children who want to give their children a solid foundation to reading and I've only heard very warm and thankful feedback."

"This course has been unspeakably useful. As a reading instructor and a member of a family with an autistic boy and an ADD/dyslexic boy, the concept that letters are pictures of sounds has been like an awakening!"

A. Herring, Chino Hills, CA

"[Our instructor] was able to bring our daughter up two grade levels and be a more confident student. If your child has trouble with reading, we would definitely recommend Phono-Graphix! [Our instructor] also helps parents in being able to assist their children with reading."

"I used Reading Reflex with my son for months, but the program has given me so much more than I expected. This method makes sense and our children NEED a reading program that isn't confusing. Since I homeschool my three boys it took me longer than I thought to get through the assignments, but that is the beauty of your course... being able to work at your own pace. My son is reading at grade level and I have a new career opportunity that will work with my schedule. Thanks for offering this program! "

S. Lagerstedt, Duvall, WA

"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."

What teachers say about using Phono-Graphix in their classrooms

"I've been using this program for children with learning disabilities for the past 10 years and it has yielded 100% success rate with all of my students. I've received many appreciative feedback from my students' parents. I am glad I was introduced to this program by my former employer/mentor. I want to take this opportunity to thank the author/creator and all involved in the Phono-Graphix Reading Company."

Sarine Tan, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

"Great evidence-based intervention for students with reading disabilities!"

Susan Etcheverry, North Battleford, Saskatchewan

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

"For over 15 years Phono-Graphix has been a big part of my life. It makes learning to read fun and simple. I have used Phono-Graphix with children and adults of all nationalities and abilities. I cannot explain how rewarding it feels to teach using Phono-Graphix and see improvements in reading as early as the first lesson! My most memorable student - a lady who had suffered a stroke. She had to learn to read and write again, and Phono-Graphix made that so easy for her. "

Gemma Sehmi, Paphos, Cyprus

"This program has served me well for the last fifteen years. I really enjoy working with students that have varying learning differences. I presently have two students diagnosed with functioning autism. This is very gratifying as they really appreciate the code. It gives them something to 'hang their hat on', so to speak. Please know that I am a sincere advocate of the Phono-Graphix program."

Patty Barna, Reading Remedy, Oceanside, San Diego, CA

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 Phono-Graphix Training Course is an unbelievable course. It takes you through step by step at such a manageable pace that before you know it, you have completed all of the assignments and you feel confident to get out there and teach it. Thank you so much!"

Sarah Menu, East Hampton, NY

"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."
