SightPhonics is a complete program that teaches adult level words in the first reading book. It is not fancy. It has no cute pictures but it works like magic and is as affordable as we could possibly make it.
Teachers: Teachers never have enough time or hands available in the classroom. SightPhonics can be
used to teach the repetitive lessons while allowing teachers the use of their skills to problem-solve and
enhance the information students have learned. It's much like having an extra reading teacher at their fingertips.
Adult Literacy Educators: SightPhonics is unique and valuable to individuals in these roles because
the repetitive lessons can be studied in the home environment allowing educators more time to designate for
other purposes. Ultimately, tutors or teachers only have to be available to utilize their skills to enhance
what the students have already learned.
Adults Unable to Attend Class: For these adults, SightPhonics provides the opportunity to learn to
read English in the privacy of their own home and on their own time.
Students with Learning Disabilities: Students can repeat lessons as much as they need to on their own
time in the privacy of their own home. Those who are sound-sensitive can use headphones to keep out other
Foreign Students: SightPhonics is designed around Audio CDs and Books that offer a potentially
complete self-teaching experience for those who have no tutor or teacher available.
Stroke Victims: SightPhonics has shown remarkable success with stroke victims who lost their ability to read. Stroke victims love SightPhonics because the reader can go directly to the Phonetic Phrase that was forgotten and refresh his memory.

: As the first main books (with 3 CDs) in a series of thirteen, they teach what the vowels are and how they are different from consonants. Then they teach the blending of a first sound and a second sound (consonant and vowel) as a "sound set" and finally teaches the end sounds also as "sound sets". Visual aides are used to separate the sound sets and make them stand out visually for better retention.
: These books teach consonant blends as beginning sounds. As with the other books, they use color to separate the sounds.
: These books teach the "silent e" rule (if there is an "e" at the end of a word, the "e" is silent and the vowel before it is pronounced in its long version).
: "The first one does the talking when two vowels go a- walking!" This book will take a bit of time and studying. It teaches that if two vowels are together in the middle of word, the first vowel is pronounced and the second one is silent.
: "The first one does the talking when two vowels go a- walking!" But not always! This book will take a bit of time and studying. It teaches two vowels together in the middle of word that do not follow the Orange Book rule. An example would be "aw" and "au".
: This is the final book of the lessons. It is titled "Odd and Wacky Stuff". This book teaches the elements of the language that lead people to comment that English is a hard language to learn. The condensed information offered here was extensively researched by computer in an attempt to teach the most important things first.
