The Sound Way to Spelling, Writing and Reading program was developed and produced by West Australian Craig Henderson. Craig, an experienced and highly qualified trainer and teacher, began his career back in the early 1970's. Since 1988 his focus and effort have been solely devoted to researching, developing, producing and refining the optimal approach to the teaching of the fundamental literacy skills of English spelling, writing and reading.
Craig's research commenced in 1988 after observing a major decline in the literacy standards of Australian and overseas students. Deciding there must be a more effective and efficient way to teach these fundamental skills, he ventured out embarking upon a worldwide search to find a solution to this most serious of problems. After years of painstaking research and development the answers and the solution finally came. These answers with the solution are now clearly documented, presented and made available to all through the ground-breaking online video series, The Sound Way to Spelling, Writing and Reading.
The first video version of The Sound Way program was produced in 1994. Within two years of being released The Sound Way was receiving national acclaim with schools receiving major National Literacy Awards; its dramatic effect on students’ literacy abilities being repeatedly featured on national television. Since that time thousands upon thousands of lives have continued to be changed as the reputation and success of the program continues to grow internationally; as well as at home in Australia.
Craig has more than forty years of educational experience, qualifications in teacher-training from the USA and Australia, as well as a Certificate in the Teaching of English as a Foreign Language from Cambridge University and the Royal Society of Arts. In 1996 his courses were awarded both State and National Accreditation status by the Skills Standard and Accreditation Board of Western Australia; now the Training Accreditation Council of Western Australia
Married since 1973, Craig and his wife Maria have three adult children and seven grandchildren.
