  • A simple and easily-remembered phonic progression that enables teachers and teaching assistants to deliver really effective phonic teaching. View an outline of the programme structure here.

As well as promoting good reading, Sound Discovery® develops confidence with comprehension, writing, spelling and handwriting.

The programme can be adapted for any group size and for any age group, including adults.
