FAQ

Some of our frequently asked questions.

  • Will the Sound Way work for my children or me?

    Yes! The experts from the U.S.A., the U.K. and Australia all now agree that Direct Instruction phonetic teaching is the quickest and surest method of providing clear and accurate reading and writing instruction to students of all ages. The Sound Way programs are the only online interactive face-to-face video teaching programs that teach advanced phonics skills while simultaneously combining the essential rules and knowledge of English spelling to its students. Whether your child is a beginning six-year-old reader, a struggling 15-year-old teenager with major spelling and reading problems, or a mature 65-year-old who just wants to be able to read and write English better; this program is for you. It will teach and equip anyone with the necessary phonetic skills and knowledge to enable them to independently unlock almost any word in the English language.

  • What results can I expect?

    Average improvement of 2 to 3 school years in reading and writing ability in a 10-12 week period - regardless of whether they used the Junior or the Senior program. Older and more mature students have recorded improvements of over six years in their reading ability and four years in their spelling ability in the same timeframe.

  • How does the Sound Way line up up with research?

    All three of the three major international governmental investigations and enquiries into the teaching practices of English literacy; the 2000 U.S. National Reading Panel Report; the 2005 Australian National Literacy Review; and the 2005 U.K. Independent Review of the Teaching of Early Reading by Sir Jim Rose; were unanimous, clear and concise in their findings and recommendations. Their recommendations are already embedded into all of The Sound Way literacy programs and have been since 1994. The 4 major findings of the investigations were: Must be Phonic-based - The Sound Way teaches all 45 sounds of the English language (phonemes) and the 75 ways of representing the sounds on paper (phonograms). Must be Multisensory - Uses all four of the possible learning avenues into the brain. Students HEAR-the sounds; SAY- the sounds; WRITE- the sounds; READ- the sounds. Must be Sequentially Developed - The Sound Way starts students with the very simple and progressively moves them up into the more complex - commencing with words like "go" and "at"; then progressively moving them up to a senior high school level teaching words such as "proficiency" and "conscientious". Must be Cumulative - The sequential development and impartation of the essential body of knowledge necessary for student success is all contained within The Sound Way video lessons and student workbooks. Upon completion of a Sound Way program students are left equipped with a complete understanding and working knowledge of the structure of English words. This knowledge can now be applied to the reading or learning of any new words they may encounter in the future.

  • How long does it take to complete?

    10 - 12 weeks depending on the program, with a recommendation of 3-4 sessions a week, which are an hour long.

  • Is the Sound Way effective with ADD, ADHD, Dyslexia and Dyspraxia?

    Yes, powerfully so!!! The straightforward, clear and positive presentation of the video lessons contained within the program provide a much desired positive change and improvement in participants' self-esteem, self-worth and self-confidence; all of which greatly helps and aids them overcome their disabilities.
