One of our member schools reflects on the early impact that the Sounds-Write phonic program has had in their classrooms.

SPELD SA has visited and trained multiple schools across South Australia, including rural areas. Sounds-Write continues to grow as a popular evidence-based phonics program which can be used in the classroom from Foundation through to Year 6. This program also offers highly effective intervention at all year levels, including in high school settings, for children who have fallen behind in reading and spelling.

“The Sounds-Write programme has enabled my class to feel proud of themselves and their ability to read and write. They are willing and ready to learn new things each day due to the excitement of Sounds Write”.

“The Sounds-Write program has also equipped students with the knowledge and skills needed to sound out words independently during writing lessons.”
