A Clinically Proven Program that Stands Out!
Results of more than 10 years of research and tutoring, Reading Gym’s alphabet phonics program will accelerate letter learning. Student who have tried many times to learn their letter sounds with little success have excelled with our program.
More than 6,000 children
have benefited from our program
Created by a certified Speech-Language Pathologist with Ontario Teaching Certification, our clinically proven program uses picture association to teach sound/symbol correspondence and multisensory training-based concepts to create fun and engaging learning experiences.
In addition to helping children along their literacy development journey, our innovative coach-led & group tutoring approach teach kids the value of hard work and perseverance. By uniting children under a common goal, we make each child feel like they are part of something special – increasing motivation and confidence.
Our alphabet phonics program focuses on picture association and key words to help children learn letter sounds quickly and accurately.
Multisensory Coaching Aids & Circuit Training
Our program is composed of short bursts of 5-minute activities that integrate kinesthetic (movement-based) and tactile (sensory-based) learning strategies with visual and auditory concepts.
Learning Assessments & Motivational Rewards
Our results-oriented program includes easy to oversee assessments to track progress on an ongoing basis, building confidence with each constructive review.
Teaching Letter Sounds Through Picture Association
The letters themselves are designed to look like real objects. This learning strategy gives meaning to what is typically an abstract concept for children. By remembering the picture, children remember the letter it represents.
Why it works?
Our program works because it teaches
letter sounds in a fun, meaningful, and easy way
for children to learn.
It’s that simple!
Why is sound/symbol correspondence so important?
Reading is not a naturally learned developmental activity such as speaking or walking. Children need to be shown and explicitly taught letter sounds in order to be able to decode words quickly and accurately.
How long does it take to learn the letter sounds?
Learning will begin immediately and will usually start to consolidate after 3-6 visits.
Why focus on letter sounds rather than letter names?
We need to know the letter sounds in order to “sound out” words. Knowing the letter sounds to automaticity allows kids to “sound out” words quickly and accurately freeing their minds to facilitate reading comprehension.
