The Sound Way is a life-changing online literacy program that provides it's students with a clear understanding of just how the English language works. In just 10 weeks we see as much as a 5 year reading improvement.
By the end of the first week you will also observe a dramatic transformation in the writing standard of every student working through the program.
Through a step-by-step sequentially developed set of video-teaching lessons, The Sound Way video-teacher teaches and leads your child, or the user, through a step-by-step process to successfully learn and master the skills of English reading, writing, spelling and clearly pronouncing English words.
The Sound Way program places your own personal video-tutor right into your own home. As he (the video-teacher) sequentially develops, presents and explains the vital literacy knowledge and understandings students will need to succeed on the screen, they are interactively working along with him in a face-to-face encounter, recording their work in carefully prepared and provided workbooks. The results users obtain using this cooperative approach to English literacy teaching can only be described as "stunningly amazing". What used to take years to accomplish can now be accomplished in a few short months; in your own home!

Because English is a phonetic language, The Sound Way programs begin by first teaching and programming the brain with the 45 sounds (phonemes) that comprise English words and the 75 ways there are of representing these sounds on paper (phonograms). The teaching, drilling and instilling of this esssential knowledge starts in the very first video-lesson and continues throughout the program. Integrated within this teaching is a thorough explanation and application of the rules of English spelling. This demystifies reading and writing and makes it truly understable to the students.
Through a series of interactive online, face-to-face video lessons, The Sound Way places an experienced, professional literacy-teacher right into your own home. Working just like a personal tutor he leads the student through a step-by-step process enabling them to successfully learn how to easily read, write, spell and clearly speak English words independently for themselves.

Average improvement of 2 to 3 school years in reading and writing ability in a 10-12 week period - regardless of whether you are using the Junior or the Senior program. Older and more mature students have recorded improvements of over six years in their reading ability and four years in their spelling ability in the same timeframe.
In Homes: 12 Weeks - requiring less than 4 hours per week and the completion of three video-lessons; each one takes approximately one and a quarter hours (including Workshop Book activity).

Yes, powerfully so!!! The straightforward, clear and positive presentation of the video lessons contained within the program provide a much desired positive change and improvement in participants' self-esteem, self-worth and self-confidence; all of which greatly helps and aids them overcome their disabilities.
It's actually very easy! The Sound Way Home Program online lessons have an Introductory Video which contains all of the necessary instructions to make it very simple for a Home Learner (young or old) or a Home Schooling parent to successfully implement and successfully complete a Sound Way program.
Parents do not need to pre-learn any material, nor any part of the program before their children can commence. The Introductory Video clearly explains matters such as frequency of lessons and how parents can be supportive and encouraging as they oversee their children's progress. Older students, 11 years and over, will generally not need the same level of support. If, however, they are young teenagers, they will need some level of support and supervision.
School, College and Workplace Programs:
The 12-hour online Teacher/Facilitator Training videos, along with the accompanying Teacher/Facilitator Manuals makes implementation of the program extremely easy for both facilitators and students. All that is required to achieve outstanding results is a committed and motivated teacher/facilitator who will diligently facilitate and oversight their students during the presentation of the video lessons.
All of the necessary Lesson Preparation, Programming and Timetabling has been provided for the teacher/facilitators and can be found within their Teacher/Facilitator Manuals.
We see an average improvement
of 2-3 years' improvement (and as much as 5 years) with children through to adults.
Children 5 to 10 years of age use the junior program and 11 years of age through to adults use the senior program.
Through many years, The Sound Way programs have proven themselves to work powerfully and effectively in overcoming and getting on top of Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, ADD, ADHD and more.
Our programs focus on the mechanics of the English language. This means in a short periodof time, people are actually taught and learn to truly APPLY and UNDERSTAND the English language it at its most fundamental level.
Step-by-step, Interactive, Online Video Lessons
The Sound Way program consists of interactive lessons, presented by Founder Craig Henderson. Craig methodically works with the student explaining key concepts and reinforces the teachings with stories. We encourage all participants and their facilitators to be interacting back with Craig at all times.
Work Along with Craig
Each student receives their own workbooks and works along with Craig, filling them out as they go. They start with learning and practicing writing methods, all the way through to completing exercises, that get progressively more advanced as the course goes on.
An Hour a Day, Three Days a Week
We recommend each student does three lessons a week. This ensures that learning is continuous and progressive throughout the course. The junior program (6-10 years) has 53 lessons and the senior program (11+ years) has 35 lessons as well as marking of workshop lessons.
From word like "cat" to words like "miscellaneous".
The phonics teaching and learning is progressive and based upon science-backed research. Students start off with basic words and progress to more advanced words and complex sentence structures. Students' rapid learning rate throughout the program is truly amazing.
My 13 year old twins did The Sound Way program just over a year ago. They were about to go to high school and my struggling son was starting high school in a remedial literacy class. After completing The Sound Way program he went from being a struggling student, to being a capable student in a main-stream class with the rest of his friends. His confidence has literally gone through the roof, and he is now happy and thoroughly enjoys reading. His sister, who didn't really need to do the programm, now finds herself able to apply the things she learned from the programme to spell new words she doesn't even know.
We were so impressed with what the two of them have learned, that we've decided to start our 10 year old on The Sound Way. We believe it's like giving kids the picture to the jigsaw puzzle. Before, they may have had some of the pieces, but didn't know where they all went. Now, not only do they have all of the pieces, but they also know how to solve the puzzle that is the English Language.
