Since our groundbreaking research in 1996, the
evidence keeps stacking up. Phono-Graphix is
simply the most effective reading method around.

Dyslexia and the Phono-Graphix reading programme, MARGARET WRIGHT and FIONA MULLAN, Support for Learning, Volume 21, Number 2, 2006
ABSTRACT: The study reported here set out to investigate the
effectiveness of the Phono-Graphix™ reading programme
with ten learners, aged 9-11 years, assessed as
having specific learning difficulties/dyslexia. Testing
was carried out via initial and final analysis of
the students’ phonological processing skills and
reading/spelling ability over an 8-month intervention
period. The students were instructed on a one-to-one
basis and each received an average of 24.3 hours of
instruction. Findings suggest that the Phono-Graphix
programme did appear to help improve students’
phonological processing skills. They further show that
a majority of the students recorded an average gain
in reading age of 21 months and an average gain in
spelling age of 12 months at the end of the training
period. Qualitative findings from the study also show
overall positive perceptions of the Phono-Graphix
intervention among the parents and class teachers
involved. The study reported here adds to the sum of
knowledge on UK trials of the Phono-Graphix approach
and makes a useful contribution to the literature on
remediation strategies for dyslexic students.
Key words: dyslexia, literacy, Phono-Graphix ,
phonological processing, synthetic phonics, remediation
strategies in reading.
