Reading Programs That Get Results

The most successful reading programs (those that get the biggest, quickest reading and spelling improvement with the highest percentage of students) are those that incorporate most of the above components. Of the hundreds of reading programs available, the three that come closest to the standards listed above are the Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing Program (LIPS), Phono-Graphix, and Master the Code (MTC).

Although the results vary by study and can depend upon the ages or types of students involved, these programs generally achieve two to three times the improvement as other reading programs.

Master the Code is the newest of these reading and spelling programs. It is based upon the most recent scientific research and incorporates all of the components of a good reading program. Although these other programs mentioned above include the key components needed to remedy reading difficulties, we believe Master the Code has several unique and important differences.
