According to the Department of Education:45 million are functionally illiterate. 50% of adults cannot read a book. It's shocking, but true!

Until now educators relied on phonics to teach reading. But fewer than 1 in 5 words can be "sounded out" and there are 1,768 ways to spell 40 sounds. Consider the sentence above where "ea" can be pronounced 13 different ways!
Reading requires 6 skills. Phonics teaches only 1. Success Reading teaches all 6. It is the first system available that uses the "Phonics-PLUS" system.
This program has transformed the teaching of reading... The program is absolutely outstanding -- not simply in teaching reading, but also in enabling people to master and expand their knowledge of English. It does so by steadily integrating spoken and written language. No other program with which I’m familiar is comparable in teaching these vital skills. I believe that central to the program's success is: (i) its steady integration of spoken and written language, and (ii) its unique incorporation of "immediate interactive feedback." Research has shown that this type of feedback is critically important to engaging the student and thereby to enhancing effective learning. It regularly provides an immediate response to what the student does, and it offers clear, simple direction to overcome any errors that occur.
