The Sound Reading System is a carefully constructed advanced ‘synthetic phonic’ reading programme that teaches children how to read and teachers how to teach the complex English spelling code in simple, logical steps.

The Sound Reading System is based on the work of Professor Diane McGuinness, who has been been actively involved in its development. “Our brains do the work for us… Once the structure of the spelling code is set up visually, numerous features and patterns come to light. Use of the patterns can dramatically speed up learning while reducing memory load” – Diane McGuinness, p.59, Early Reading Instruction (MIT Press, 2004)
