"I implemented Sounds-Write in my Pre-Primary classroom after attending the course in Perth Australia. The children responded well to the program and made large gains in their spelling, reading and writing abilities. Every child made gains above what I expected. I have never had a group of 5 years old children so confident with phonics. The children thoroughly enjoyed the program and the language made the program explicit and easy to teach. "

- Mrs Katie Bogdanich, Pre-Primary Teacher, St Helena's Catholic Primary School, Perth, Australia
