Is your child making frequent spelling errors, particularly in written expression?

Are they displaying a reluctance to participate in literacy-based activities?

Does your child enjoy reading, by guessing from pictures, initial letters, or the ‘look’ of a word?

How do we help children learn to read?

Sounds-Write is an evidence-based phonics program utilising a highly successful approach to the teaching of reading, spelling and writing.

This program offers an instructional method that is structured, cumulative, sequential and explicit which is highly recommended for teaching all children to read and spell.

It places emphasis on giving practice that is grounded in physical, concrete experience of the ideas and conceptual understanding the students need to assimilate.

Sounds-Write is developmentally appropriate for beginning readers in the first three years of school, and also offers fast and highly effective intervention for students who need support with reading and spelling. The program is suitable for ages 5 to adult.
