Training in the Sound Reading System
Information on our training courses, teaching materials and some of the feedback we have received.
The Teachers’ Handbook offers comprehensive information on the English alphabet code and how to teach it. Diagnostic tests allow the teacher to identify the errors of the struggling reader and choose the appropriate teaching pathway.
The Teaching Materials are designed to support both the teacher and the learner every step of the way. They are flexible enough to adapt to different levels of learning, providing all the necessary interactive cards and worksheets to teach accurate reading and spelling.
We have provided example pages from the Teaching Materials below. These interactive worksheets support hands-on teaching.
