Sound Shapes Precision Phonics™ is a preschool reading program that helps to prevent dyslexia.
Learning to read as a young child can be relatively easy for those who have a mind for it. But for many children, learning to decode the complex English language can be a daunting task, particularly for children who are at risk for dyslexia. Failure to master the basics of reading early can seriously handicap subsequent learning.
What if we could design a rigorously conceptual approach to preschool literacy that would engage the greatest potential of every child, regardless of individual learning challenges, and at the same time strengthen his critical reasoning skills?
Sound Shapes Precision Phonics™ is a Montessori-based program that emphasizes the twin principles of “isolation of difficulty” and “control of error” as basic teaching strategies. This model of reading instruction sets itself apart from other American Montessori methods by a more rigorous application of Maria Montessori’s foundational principles, adhering even more faithfully to the original methods and materials she developed for her Italian bambini.
