How Does Sound Reading Work?
Sound Reading is based on print-to-speech processing and elevates a student’s reading ability by rapidly developing Phonemic Awareness and Auditory Processing skills. Sound Reading is not a phonics program. Sound Reading builds the skills necessary to complete phonics programs. Our methodology strengthens the innate skills all readers have!
Challenged readers prove may need additional support in developing areas of the brain that natural readers often have. Sound Reading Programs train the brain to approach reading from a new perspective and help develop essential reading skills along the way. In addition to Auditory Processing and Phonemic Awareness, Sound Reading includes three other key skill areas. These areas are:
Comprehension is reading with a complete understanding of text. When a student cannot fully apply comprehension skills, they rely on the half of the brain devoted to listening. Sound Reading develops the Auditory Process and other listening skills, setting the ground work for solid comprehension.

Key Features for Students
Sound Reading’s instruction is carried out via online literacy activities that students complete individually. Students begin the program by taking an Auto-Placement Assessment.

These readers are designed to be completed by students and a trusted adult. The activities and passages found in these readers help reinforce students’ learning.
