Description:

The Special Education Division of the Green River Regional Educational Cooperative is pleased to offer See the Sound – Visual Phonics training.  See the Sound – Visual Phonics is a system of 46 unique hand cues and symbols that represent the sounds of English.  It is a somewhat simplified, visual, kinesthetic version of the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA).  Participants will learn a hand cue for each of the 46 sounds in English.  Each hand cue is associated in some way with the production of the particular sound.  See the Sound – Visual Phonics benefits students who read below grade level in general or special education settings, children in early education programs, at-risk readers, students who are deaf or hard or hearing with any degree of hearing loss, and students learning English as a second language.

How Does See the Sound-Visual Phonics Help?

  • See the Sound-Visual Phonics is the first step to reading, as sound (not the alphabet) is the root of language, and it is easy to use. Once a student has learned it, s/he has a powerful tool to learn basic literacy and communication skills. Most beginning readers learn it more quickly than other methods. Many “remedial” readers can learn it in a few weeks.
  • See the Sound-Visual Phonics helps students pronounce and understand words so quickly that almost from the beginning, comprehension, not decoding, becomes the natural focus of reading.
  • See the Sound-Visual Phonics is cost effective and can be incorporated into almost any traditional reading program to create a comprehensive curriculum.
