Ultimate Phonics an excellent remedial reading phonics program for your older children and students who are struggling readers.

Why your child has trouble with reading

Your child has trouble with reading because the human brain is not designed by nature to read. Although we are naturally provided with incredible spoken language abilities, there is no part of our brain that is designed to read printed language. This explains why learning to read is so difficult for your child and why a well designed phonics program is the key for teaching him.

What happens when we learn to read

When we learn to read we go through a gradual process of connecting the parts of the brain that recognize patterns such as letters and letter groups with the parts of the brain that handle spoken language. This is commonly known as phonics. When this learning process is complete we can rapidly scan printed language and fluently and accurately decode it into spoken language. That is, we can now read.

Phonics is the key to reading achievement

Numerous scientific studies have shown that phonics skills are the single most important predictor of successful reading achievement.

You can't leave reading to the schools

Most children never go through the process of learning to skillfully read. Unfortunately, you can't just leave it to the schools to fix the problem. Look at the U.S. national reading scores for 4th and 8th graders in 2013:

2013 National 4th Grade Reading Scores (US NAEP)
Reading Level Percent
Advanced 8%
Proficient 27%
Basic 34%
Below Basic 32%

Almost two-thirds of fourth graders read below a proficient level, which means they are poor readers or illiterate

Only 8% of 4th graders are advanced readers

2013 National 8th Grade Reading Scores (US NAEP)
Reading Level Percent
Advanced 4%
Proficient 32%
Basic 42%
Below Basic 22%

In 8th grade, almost two-thirds of students are still poor readers or illiterate

Only 4% of 8th graders are advanced readers

Better reading is essential for all subjects

As you know, reading is a critical skill for learning other subjects, even math. It is very difficult to get a good education with weak reading skills.

Once they are behind, most never catch up

Studies show that for students reading below grade level in fourth grade, close to 75% never catch up. Our aim is to make sure your struggling reader is one the 25% that catches up and goes on to a successful education.

The importance of phonics

Weak phonics skills are often the root of many reading problems, including poor comprehension. In fact, it is impossible to be a good reader without strong phonics decoding skills and fluency.

If your child is heavily dependent on word memorizing and sight reading, we need to fix this problem now. If your child guesses and skips new words, or decodes words very slowly, he will never have good comprehension. Good comprehension requires fluent, accurate, decoding. This is exactly what Ultimate Phonics teaches.
