"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

"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

"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 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

"We have implemented Literacy Speaks! across our early childhood speech/language department and have seen big changes with some students who were just unable to grasp a certain sound or word using pictures. We received a positive response from parents and other educators as well." — SLP

"I use the cards a lot in my therapy sessions. The kids really like the colorful drawings and the stories." — SLP

"I really like Literacy Speaks. I got it last year and use it quite a bit with my students (3rd and 4th grades). It's easy to print out homework that is directly related to what you practiced in your session." — Mellen R., SLP

"I love Literacy Speaks, even for my older (4th grade and up) clients." — Jill E., SLP

"I have quite a few pediatric patients, and I began to use it with almost all of them. I have found it especially helpful for treating final consonant deletions, but also it gives a very structured approach for autistic children, which they need. The children and parents love it. I went ahead and printed out the pages, and placed them in 3-ring binders, organized by letters. I can quickly run the pages through the copier, then I just staple the "books" together. I highly recommend "Literacy Speaks" for any SLP working with a pediatric population." — SLP

"I have used this program at a school for children with behavior problems. My students enjoy the pictures and short stories." — SLP

"This 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!" — Emily Hathaway, MS, CCC-SLP & Clinical Director

"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, but it also creates phonemic awareness!" — Early Childhood Speech-Language Pathologist

"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

"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 takeaway 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.”  — R.H., MA, CCC-SLP

  • Begin with print only by using a single letter card.
    • Introduce the printed letter, then establish correct sound-letter correlation without using picture stimuli.
  • Trace a letter.
    • Strengthen letter knowledge using the reproducible activity sheets.
  • Go on a letter hunt.
    • Engage students in a fun and functional method to find target sound-letter correlations in various environments.
  • Once sound-letter correlation is achieved, introduce the printed word.
    • Use the reverse side of the target stimulus card (print only) to teach correct production at the word level.
  • Now display the target picture.
    • Once accurate production of the target word is achieved using print only, now use the front of the stimulus card to introduce the picture. This critical step links orthographic knowledge to phonological conception!
  • Color a picture.
    • Use the reproducible coloring sheets to strengthen use at the word level and encourage generalization to home & classroom environments.
  • Use in a phrase.
    • Combine the sight word cards with the target word card to establish the target word in phrases.
  • Use in a sentence.
    • Use sight word cards, high frequency words, and punctuation cards to create sentences with the target word.
  • Create, color and read the included, reproducible storybooks.
    • Children love these whimsical, sound-loaded storybooks and have such a sense of accomplishment once they are able to read the stories themselves out loud. Just imagine their smile!
  • Read! Read!! Read!!!
    • Read to a child today and you will build the literacy foundations for tomorrow!
