When my daughter, was in second grade, her English teacher brought to my attention that she needs help with literacy. She was reading below her grade level. Although her father and I were reading to her when she was little, we never noticed that she was struggling. At the beginning, I hired a reading tutor but it was not addressing the problem.
I was advised to look for a reading therapist, meaning someone who is trained to address the problem from its core. I finally was able to find a Phono-Graphix therapist. My daughter showed improvement from the early stages of therapy.
I had to support my daughter throughout her sessions in Phono-Graphix and I was impressed by how effective, straight-forward and structured this program is. The success my daughter had with this program made me want to help other kids with the same struggles.
English: From sound to symbol to meaning
Learning to read well is the most important skill any student needs to do well. In fact, it is the building blocks to his/her future. Reading and decoding English can be a struggle to many students even native speakers. Struggling readers' lives are filled with anxiety that prevents them from doing well academically.
Phonics, the classic method used in teaching English reading and decoding works well with some kids, but others do struggle. Their struggle isn't necessarily related to a learning difficulty, because simply phonics is just not working.

During the early years of schooling, many children face learning difficulties and can be diagnosed with dyslexia. Dyslexic children struggle with reading, and therefore their spelling, writing and comprehension get affected. In fact, 1 out of 5 students in the USA read below their grade level. In the Middle East and around the world, some students are labeled as unintellectual because of reading difficulties.
Dyslexia is not a disease, but rather a unique collection of symptoms that if addressed correctly using the best instructional approach, the results are proven to be very promising.
Many dyslexic people are bright and artistic, but they can't achieve their fullest intellectual potential due to the fact that they read slowly or can't read at all. Dyslexia causes anxiety and lowers students' self confidence. If your child is dyslexic,
