I'm an Accredited Reading Therapist. Love working with people.
Children learn to speak long before they are taught to read. They are, therefore, aware of the sounds in words long before they are introduced to the letters associated with those sounds. When reading is taught using “sound pictures,” Phono-Graphix presents the child with a visual representation of sounds he has already both heard and spoken.Fun and interactive way to learn English.
Experience: 5 years
About meWhat makes Phono-Graphix unique?
Phono-Graphix is based on the nature of the English code as described by linguists. Instruction progresses from the sound to the symbol.
Lessons employ the requisite three skills to access such a code, as understood within the field of neuroscience: segmenting, blending, and phoneme manipulation.
Lessons are errorless - every response which doesn't produce a meaningful answer becomes a highly teachable moment which does. Memory networks are laid down through multiple bidirectional instruction: sound to symbol/symbol to sound, and each response is reinforced by accuracy.
Because our clientele are children, the program is taught in keeping with the way children learn, through paired association embedded in engaging and straightforward lessons.
Phono-Graphix is not based on nor an extension of any other method, theory, or book. Phono-Graphix does not fit into conventional definitions of phonics and we do not consider it a phonics program, but rather a new paradigm in reading instruction based on the true nature of the English written code.
