A simple program designed to start a young student reading. Most such programs rely heavily on phonics. Our program can work with a phonics program, but is based on another method of learning to read, Whole Word Recognition. And our spelling program is entirely unlike the method used by almost all educators today. There are no prepared lists of words. Our spelling program works around the needs of each specific student. It is perhaps one of the most useful part of our Step 1 studies!
