The Sound Way literacy program is the ideal tool to deliver significant improvement to company productivity, profitability and communication throughout its network by quickly providing and imparting effective English literacy training to its employees.

How it Works

The multi-sensory 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 and experienced literacy specialist into every classroom within your school. Working as the lead teacher during lessons he leads the students through step-by-step process that enables them to learn, practice and master the skills necessary to easily read, write and spell English words.

The Sound Way can be run as a one on one program, or as a class/group of up to 50 participants.

Time required to work with and complete the program is only approximately 50 hours (35 x 1.5 hour lessons).

  • 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.


  • Home Programs

    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.

Armed Forces of Oman

(Middle East)

The Oman Ministry of Defence ran a pilot program with a group of ranking officers. At the end of the program 93% of the officers thought it was the best English literacy course ever and most wanted to purchase it to give to their children and families.


What to Expect When Doing the Course?

Interactive Lessons

The Sound Way program consists of interactive lessons, presented by Founder Craig Henderson. Craig methodically works with the participants explaining key concepts and reinforces the teachings with stories. We encourage all participants and their facilitators to interact back with Craig.

Work Along with Craig

Each participant receives their own workbook and works along with Craig, filling it out as they go. They start with 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 participants complete three lessons a week. This ensures consolidation of learning and a steady progress through the course. The workplace program has 35 lessons; with the option to extend that to 50 lessons. The 15 additional lessons teach cursive writing and provide vocabulary extension.

From Cat to Miscellaneous

The phonics teaching and learning is progressive and based upon science-backed research. Participants start off with basic words and progress to more advanced words and complex sentence structures. The improvement throughout the program truly is amazing.
