What is the Sound Reading System?
It is a carefully constructed advanced ‘synthetic phonic’ reading programme that teaches children and adults how to read the complex English spelling code in simple, logical steps. The careful structure makes it both a reliable teaching tool and a tool with which to train teachers. The Sound Reading System is built round a comprehensive understanding of the entire English spelling code and could be usefully described as a ‘linguistic phonic’ programme.
It has broken down the code into a workable framework:
- 26 alphabet letters,
- 44 spoken sounds,
- 176 basic spellings.
