I'm really excited about using the online resources in my classroom. The videos coupled with the testing and worksheets - I've never encountered a resource as thorough and useful and I've been looking!

Sound Training is brilliant. I managed to get a 'B' in English AND I am now reading books. I never did that before!
Hani, Yr 11 pupil, Aston Manor School, Birmingham
Once a week a dyslexic Yr 9 student disappeared from my lesson to attend STfR and within three weeks I saw a difference: she had confidence, she put her hand up in class , she constantly smiled but most importantly her reading AND spelling improved. Sound Training does work magic!
Nikki Toohin, English Teacher, Archway School, Stroud
I practised my delivery of Sound Training on my eight year old daughter before delivering to our Yr 9 pupils. She has gone up from a 2b to a 3b since January.
Apart from the huge impact on reading ability, Sound Training has enriched the pupils’ understanding of spoken vocabulary.

Orchard School Bristol
One of OFSTED's key findings in our November 2015 inspection was that 'Teachers pay meticulous attention to improving pupils' literacy skills' and that 'development of pupils' key literacy skills, including reading, is impressive. Students rapidly gain the skills needed to be successful in their learning.' Undoubtedly, Sound Training plays an important part in this.
Ian Jones, School Licenced Trainer, Orchard School Bristol
The school’s use of the year 7 catch-up funding supports pupils well, for example in improving reading. The initiative called 'Sound Training for Reading' is ensuring that students make good progress in their literacy.
