In kindergarten through grade 3 children learn to read; thereafter they read to learn. Delays and challenges in learning how to read fluently and with comprehension will impact long term academic success. Children with hearing loss need very specific teaching to their areas of error or delay. Using the classroom curriculum and teaching strategies will provide more of the same, but not specifically targeted instruction. Reading Reflex provides instructional strategies the can ehance what is taught in the classroom and allow you to specifically target areas of challenge for students with hearing loss. Easy enough for parents to use, thorough enough for a great review of reading basics and specific PhonoGraphix techniques – this book will find a useful place on your shelf. The techniques are even more useful to you as you provide instruction to ‘catch up’ student reading ability. Karen Anderson, Director
Reading is the single most important skill for any child to develop. And the key to learning how to read effectively is recognizing the sounds that letters and words represent. With the help of the revolutionary system known as Phono-Graphix, a child can discover the sound-picture code that is the foundation of the written English language.
The purpose of Reading Reflex is to help children unlock the sound-picture code.
Phono-Graphix is an effective and easy-to-understand approach. The authors state that Phono-Graphix enables you to teach a child to read in one-tenth the time of phonics with a 100 percent success rate. In just eleven weeks, you can bring a kindergartner to first-grade-level reading—even learning-disabled children can reach grade level or higher in just twelve weeks. Children with hearing loss need very specific teaching to their areas of error or delay. Using the classroom curriculum and teaching strategies will provide more of the same, but not specifically targeted instruction.
Reading Reflex provides you with:
