Why it Works
Addressing Multiple Targets
The Lively Letters™ program addresses multiple targets, simultaneously training students in the critical skills of:
• phonemic awareness
• speech production
Oral Kinesthetics and Mnemonics
The oral kinesthetic (mouth cues) feature of the Lively Letters™ Program helps set it apart from other multi-sensory programs, as students are taught what to do with their mouths in order to produce the sounds. This is done in a fun and engaging way as students are introduced to meaningful letter characters that are strategically embedded right into the letters.
Lively Letters™ uses proven strategies for errorless responding to prevent sequencing errors and impulsive guessing for those with rapid naming problems.
Benefits You Can See
Quickly and dramatically closing Achievement Gaps Lively Letters™ students gain years in reading levels skills in just weeks. Students trained with the Lively Letters™ program typically show improvements of 1.5 to 3 grade levels in the areas of phonemic awareness, phonetic decoding, and oral reading in as little as 6-8 weeks, with even higher gains seen in older students.
The keys to closing achievement gaps
Quickly training letter sound associations
Improving speech production skills for articulating the sounds
Building high-level phonemic awareness skills of sound blending, segmenting and manipulation
Training skills of phonetic reading and spelling of single words (one-syllable through multisyllable)
Building automaticity for single word decoding (reading), which helps improve reading fluency
