Gently Graded and Sensitive Learning
The program "starts from the beginning", when the children are in a pre-reading stage. Each story teaches the use of a specific phonics component - there are 60 stories and they cover the full spectrum of the English language.
Finally, there is a clear intent with the program, which is to deliver the child to independent reading. If you follow each story in sequence, then as hundreds of thousands of families have discovered, your children will learn to read.
Fantastic Phonics Video
We will also be providing the video adaption of the Program. Currently, the videos are being researched and adapted to maximise results. The first research results clearly show that, opposite to what we might have guessed, the best results are gained when the child enjoys the video first, then moves on to the story-book.
The researchers are seeing remarkable outcomes - children as young as 18 months are pouncing on the video, then moving to the printed story with sufficient knowledge to begin reading, immediately.
