Watching her son write down all the words with the sound "ae"--though not necessarily the letter "a"--was the spark that began the "Phono-Graphix" method. A sound-picture code, Phono-Graphix teaches children that letters do not make sounds, letters represent sounds. Focusing on the subsets of reading that come second-nature to adults, building blocks will eventually allow children to come to reading naturally. Detailed illustrations, instructions, exercises, hands-on materials, worksheets, stories and games are included for lessons all children can enjoy. 353 indexed pages, softcover.

Review 1 for Reading Reflex
great idea, affordable, concept sound
Date:September 13, 2012
This book should have perforated pages, when I followed the directions I ended up with ragged edges and the pages you don't tear out look horribly shredded. I am excited by the idea and method being taught, it makes so much sense. I like the product, not the package. I have talked it up to my homeschooling friends.

Review 2 for Reading Reflex
Date:February 17, 2003
I began working with my daughter, trying to teach her to read from the time she was a preschooler. Unfortunately, though, it just wasn't clicking. Then I heard about Reading Reflex. When I got the book, I honestly thought it looked too easy to really make a difference, but I was wrong. Within just days after using Reading Reflex, we saw a marked difference and within a month, she was reading away and is still going strong reading. I tried a lot of different approaches to teach reading, and this was the only one that worked.Sharon Wilharm, author of Patchwork Primers Homeschool Unit Studies

Review 3 for Reading Reflex
Date:April 1, 2002
It's true! My oldest boy struggled with reading and reading programs throughout Kindergarten and half of first grade. I started him in January of his first grade year, and by March he was above grade level. My daughter, 18 months younger just listened in on his lessons and began correcting his reading! When it was time to teach the youngest, I had worked through the program and was more relaxed with it - and he wanted to read quickly. In a few weeks he could read well and expressively out loud. Now in the first, fourth and fifth grades, these kids repeatedly score 1-4 yrs above grade level on standardized tests.The program teaches the parent/tutor why whole word and phonic systems are limiting in and of themselves, and how pronouncing of words is the key. Evaluation and placement 'tests' are in the book, and games and stories. My kids begged for reading time.
