3 Step Reading Program

Our proven online reading programs use a 3 step method to build the underlying skills that support reading and writing development and then target fluency and comprehension.

Most reading programs provide more and more reading practice or work on phonics skills without first building the underlying skills that support reading and phonics development. This is like building the roof of a house without first building the supporting walls.

The Sonic Learning 3 step reading program is different.

Reading program step 1

Build the foundations of reading – memory, attention, processing and sequencing .

Reading program step 2WALLS
Explore word meanings, build sentences and paragraphs, work on punctuation and much more.

It this program a miracle cure?

No program is a miracle cure and any program claiming this is most likely not based in research. Reading difficulties can be complex and each child has different strengths and weaknesses. However, research shows that the brain is changeable – it can reorganise itself with the right kind of practise. The programs we use have been proven to change the way the brain is organised for reading. This is not a replacement for high quality reading instruction, which every student should be receiving at school.

Comprehensive program

We recommend enrolling in a 12 month course to complete all the steps, but if you prefer a shorter program, you can do the steps separately in any order you like.
