Customer Reviews:

"I saw Keli Richmond do a presentation on Literacy Speaks! at our state SLP conference. When she talked about incorporating orthographic cues into therapy, I was excited because I have been doing this for years with huge success! Her program makes it so easy for all of the SLP's in our office to incorporate literacy into our articulation treatment. The kids LOVE the books, and it is so great to have such successful "readers", even as young as 3 years old. We have seen tremendous growth, not only in articulation, but also in early literacy skills and even better attention with the use of this program. Kids are able to self-correct because they have the phonemic representation for the orthographic cue. I especially love that they have several different /r/ sounds available including vocalic /r/ at the beginning and the ending of words. And, it is so great to have a product that targets vowels! Literacy Speaks! has been such an asset to our program and has really increased the quality of services we provide. And, it is SO easy to use! We can't get enough of this program! In fact, I have requested that they expand the program to include consonant blends as well as consonants in the medial position. Can't wait to see more of this product!"
—Emily Hathaway, MS, CCC-SLP & Clinical Director

 "After using the Literacy Speaks! materials for only a few weeks, my young students began to enjoy looking for letters. Sounds in a particular word position that children have struggled with for a long time just "seemed to click". With the use of the Literacy Speaks!® program, my students can see where sounds are located in words."
—Early Childhood Speech-Language Pathologist

 "This program is highly successful for children that are making little or no progress with traditional therapy.  I observed dramatic improvements in my students with Final Consonant Deletion. Literacy Speaks! not only remediates difficult  error patterns, it creates phonemic awareness!"
—Early Childhood Speech-Language Pathologist

"I have one student who I was particularly 'stumped' with and I began using your program with him. What a difference! His DIBELS scores for phoneme segmentation have gone from 0-30 and alphabetic principal from 0-20, all in two months time. It is so exciting to see how much he loves the take home books. I have to have one for him each speech sessions...if not, he is very disappointed. As I walk him back to his kindergarten class, he stops anyone he can find in the hallway and asks them if they would like to hear him read!"
—K.M., Coordinator of Speech Services

"It has been absolutely amazing the progress our children have made from this program!"  
—J.K., Center Supervisor, CANI Head Start

"You have created quite a unique and EFFECTIVE program! For all the very busy SLPs out there who needed a program like this, I thank you."
—Coordinator of Speech Services

"I have taught at-risk preschoolers for many years, and I am thrilled to say that Literacy Speaks! has been the most successful literacy approach I have ever used. Not only did my English speakers make remarkable strides in letter/sound correlations, but even my ESL students markedly improved their literacy and language skills. And the children were fully engaged throughout the process! A great program!"
—C.L., Head Start Teacher

"I was excited to find that 7 out of 9 of my self-contained special education preschoolers moved on to general education kindergarten and are either no longer eligible for special education services or will receive only minimal support as a result of consistently using Literacy Speaks! in my classroom. My 4-year-olds are identifying letters and sounds while increasing their language skills and remarkably, non-verbal 3-year olds are matching letters. Literacy Speaks! has inspired a diverse group of students with a variety of learning and achievement!"
—Early Childhood Special Education Teacher

"The Literacy Speaks! Program has dramatically improved my daughter's speech. Now, she enjoys searching for letters and has finally become aware of the sounds she is using in her speech. She is even beginning to correct several sounds on her own!”
—Parent of 4-year-old preschool student

"I have presented the first 3 sets at a district SLP meeting. Everyone was impressed with the strategy of letter-sound recognition first before pictures. They got that big take-away message loud and clear. One of our supervisors mentioned how this program goes right along with the Readwell program utilized in our MM and MS classrooms. Thanks again for putting together such a great tool. All the kids especially love the stories. The Kinder parents are knocked out at their kids 'reading' the high frequency word sentences.”
