What is Sound Reading?
Sound Reading’s programs address the root problems in reading instruction. Current instruction focuses solely on phonics, which is just one component of learning to read, but misses phonemic awareness (or the symbols and sounds of letters). Sound Reading, however, focuses on how language and speech develop in a child’s brain. Sound Reading’s programs heighten speech and language abilities by teaching children the correspondence between the letters on a page and the sounds of words.
