But most people who struggle with reading do so because of the instruction they failed to receive as children. The good news is that it is never too late to become a successful reader and speller. Watch below to find out more. We All Can Read is a step-by-step intensive phonics program designed for older students and adults who never received systematic phonics instruction as children. I developed this program specifically for students beyond the second grade and all the way through high school and adults as well. In my experience older students who have difficulty in reading, have difficulty in reading because when they were in grades K-2 they did not receive a thorough, systematic foundation in the phonetic basis of our language.
Phonics for Adults – That Reading Thing
Here are a few that can be avoided by approaching phonics for adults with an open mind, a love of the language and high expectation that discouraged learners can discover a new way to get over lifelong barriers to reading and writing. There is lots to know about how the sounds of English are represented in writing. They need a tool that will quickly help them to read and spell. My worst-case scenario would have students being shown a letter and told what sound it makes. This feels like infant school and is unnecessary for most learners. Instead: Rather than learning about phonics, students need to be using phonics in the context of whole meaningful words from the first minute, and lessons should be about much more than remembering which letter represents which sound. At every step, learners should be gaining more understanding about how the language works and picking up the vocabulary to discuss reading and spelling.
