I am excited to have the opportunity to let you know about a remarkable system for teaching reading
that I have recently discovered. A friend told me about a program named Action Phonics from
Potentials learning systems. I called potentials and to find out more.
It turns out that a man named Frank Lang, who founded Potentials
learning systems over 40
years ago, developed Action Phonics while working with students that no
one else would take.
this was long before we even had labels like Autism, Dyslexia, and
Disorder. Through Mr. Lang research a system was developed that could
work for anyone
including people with severe learning disabilities. Based on the laws of learning this system
combines special techniques to make reading an automatic skill like
talking or listening. They
told me that their average progress rate for reading is better than a
grade in 15 hours including
people with learning disabilities like Dyslexia and ADD.
I asked about comprehension and they explained that when a student no
longer has to struggle with
reading, they are better able to comprehend what they are reading. Not
only are good reading skills
essential to learning any subject, the learning skills acquired during
this process gives the student an
advantage in anything they try to learn.
After becoming disappointed with many of the learning games and gimmicks available on the market
these days I was still skeptical. This almost sounded to good to be
true. Because they have been
around so long they were able to provide me with many references. I
began to call some of them and
found that it was true. People who were told that they would never learn
to read did learn threw
Action Phonics. I found out that last year in South Georgia a pilot
project was conducted using
Action Phonics in a public school. The results were so impressive that
the team of teachers involved
were elected "best reading in the state" by the Georgia Middle School Association.
Potentials was founded on the belief that human potentials is
unlimited, they have been proving it for
over 40 years. Potentials has programs for using Action Phonics at home,
in schools, and
professionally. I hope that this will help you as it has for many
If you e-mail me your name, address, and telephone number and I will ask
my friends at Potentials to
send you more detailed information. Including some sample case studies
and references. Please
include some information about your own particular needs so that they
will know which information
Or call Potentials 800 452 7323, and tell them that Patrick and Kelly
told you about Action Phonics.
You'll be glad you did.
