How ClearFluency works
ClearFluency builds fluency, comprehension and vocabulary
a model of fluent reading.
Every ClearFluency session begins with a word wall that pre-teaches academic vocabulary and offers pronunciations for all words.
Next, students activate prior knowledge while previewing the reading selection. Students can choose to read silently or listen to a model of fluent reading.
Students then record as they read the text aloud, receiving support when they mispronounce or struggle with a word. After recording, students can see colour-coded feedback and privately listen to their audio.
After they have recorded the selection, students take a short comprehension quiz that allows them to reread and look for text evidence when answering.
Reading progress you can hear
Listening to students’ confidence grow as they read is exciting and rewarding. Hear how one student progressed after only three months of using ClearFluency.

Is there a guarantee?
As health and education professionals, we adhere by relevant advertising standards which state we can’t guarantee a certain result (every brain is different!) What we do guarantee is to provide you with awesome, research-backed exercises and professional support to help you progress through the programs. We’re committed to helping you improve your skills and are always here to help throughout your program.
Can I use my NDIS funding?
As these programs are delivered by health and education professionals, we can provide NDIS-friendly billing for self-managed and plan-managed NDIS participants. If you’re new to our programs you will need to enrol in our NDIS course which includes weekly consults to ensure you receive the support you need for optimal results. After the initial 3 months, you’ll also be able to access larger discounts on training extensions.
When does the course begin and end?
Your course will begin on your first training day and end 3, 6 or 12 months later (depending on your chosen package). Sonic Learning’s team will monitor and adjust your program during this time as needed. You will have unlimited access and do not need to worry about running out of exercises to do.
Can I pause my subscription?
Your subscription will begin on your first day of training and cannot be paused, but it’s ok to take up to a week’s break for every 3 months you’re on the program – just aim for 20 sessions per month for best results.
How long will I need to complete the program?
As the ClearFluency library contains hundreds of selections, you can keep going on this program for a long time if you’d like to! The amount of time you spend on the program will depend on a number of factors including your goals and current reading skill level. Talk to us before you enrol so we can recommend a suitable course length.
Can I purchase additional training time?
Yes, at the end of the initial subscription you may purchase additional training time in monthly blocks, with discounts provided for purchases of 2 or 3 month extensions.
What technology do I need?
ClearFluency can be used on most Windows and Mac computers through your internet browser (we recommend Google Chrome browser). It’s compatible with iPad but we don’t recommend using an iPad as the text tends to be small and it’s difficult to get a headset compatible with iPad and ClearFluency in Australia. You’ll need a Logitech H390 or Microsoft Lifechat LX-3000 headset to use ClearFluency, and this headset is included with all full price subscriptions. These headsets have a USB connection that includes an inbuilt sound card to ensure a high quality signal and have been tested and approved by the developers.
