Through Auditory Processing Intervention

Sound Reading is an online reading intervention for emergent, and pre-emergent, readers already behind their peers. These students may face persistent reading challenges and struggle to complete phonics programs.

This program addresses reading challenges that can prevent traditional reading program from being effective. Sound Reading Online delivers tiered intervention that your child can start, complete, and progress through all four levels! Give your child a new approach to literacy with intuitive methodology.

Phonemic Awareness is an auditory and oral process. An example of a Phonemic Awareness skill is to correctly identify every sound in the word in ‘kite’.

The answer: /k/ /i/ /te/.

Auditory Processing defines how the brain collect and interpret sound information. Many reading disorders stem from Auditory Processing challenges.

Sound Reading heavily relies on audio cues to develop the Auditory Process.

Answer the Persistent Reading Challenges that Traditional Intervention Programs Overlook


In order to deliver individualized instruction, Sound Reading Online’s Foundation Suite is a single solution, divided into four (4) distinct programs. Students start on the level based on their skill level and progress through the program. That means your student can progress through multiple programs over the course of Sound Reading. Once students complete Sound Reading, they are ready to begin traditional phonics programs.

Click the Tabs to Learn About Each Program

Hop, Skip, Jump is the first program in Sound Reading’s Foundation Suite, and is meant for Pre-Emergent Readers. It provides an introduction to essential building blocks of literacy such as Phonemic Awareness and Auditory Processing.

It includes animated characters and engaging themes for pre-emergent readers. A key focus is Errorless Learning, making sure students have a positive learning environment.

Launch Pad follows the same skill level and methodology as Hop, Skip, Jump but is designed to be more appropriate for older students. Some themes within activities are changed. It’s important that students in Launch Pad begin working immediately so they can begin improving!

Launch Pad is only assigned in unique circumstances with older students.

Boost expands on many of the skills that Hop, Skip, Jump introduced with progressive intensity. It also introduces activities that will begin to develop comprehension in students.

Boost introduces skills such as concept formation, building sentences from fragments, active sentence reasoning, and listening comprehension.

Remedy is the final program in Sound Reading’s Foundation Suite, Remedy is also the longest program within Sound Reading. All previous skills are still present but Comprehension skills are given the highest priority.

Once students complete Remedy, they may begin work in traditional reading programs. 

Your Student’s Instruction in 3 Simple Steps


Your child will begin a 3-minute reading assessment. This initial assessment, and benchmarking assessments after some levels, are the only times your child will be faced with time pressure. We understand how important learning in a supportive environment is to emergent readers. Your child’s score on the Auto-Placement Assessment will determine their initial program in Sound Reading.

While the Auto-Placement Assessment takes away the stress of having to calculate what program your child should be in, you will always have the option to manually choose your child’s program.

Sound Reading uses 39 unique research-based activities to develop literacy skills. These activities are repeated with progressive intensity, building strong literacy foundations. This makes learning to read fun and enjoyable while developing Fluency, Decoding, and Auditory Discrimination skills and more! Use the included online Readers to reinforce the Automaticity and Reading Comprehension skills they’ve developed using Sound Reading Online!

Sound Reading treats reading disorders through adaptive and rapid intervention, using innate skills that all students have. This program effectively compliments school instruction and is perfect for students falling behind their peers!

Sound Reading comes included with electronic Companion Readers for every program in Sound Reading. These passages are completed 1-on-1 with a parent or trusted adult. The practice that students get in the online program needs to be reinforced with practical application.

Students will work to complete these additional activities and reading passages with their teacher once they complete a level of Sound Reading. These passages and develop those extra skills is a critical step in Sound Reading’s instruction.
