Fast progress without guessing or tears of frustration
Learning to read has always been hard for a lot of bright children (me included). The inconsistent phonics rules, the endless sight words, the boring early reader books… it’s no wonder that learning to read has been so frustrating for so many children.
Time to try a new approach, proven to work better
What if there was a different way to teach children to read – without sight words and without phonics rules? A way that was fun, easy, and actually worked with your child’s learning strengths? There is: pictophonics.
Pictophonics teaches reading the way the brain wants to learn: it’s visual, fun, and skills-based. With the help of visual prompts, a child can easily decode words correctly, even tricky ones. It’s ideal for visual learners, dyslexics, beginners, or struggling readers. Parents, teachers, and kids (yes!) rave about it.
Reviews of Pictophonics
“It has been brilliant for Elsa. She is now in the top reading group in her class and reads FOR PLEASURE!!! We are really thrilled and extremely grateful for what [this] has done for her. I hope you can reach many many more “reluctant readers” with this wonderful tool-kit.” See more on our Reviews page.
Pictophonics has been independently tested through a randomized control trial of its use in the Easyread System. A published peer-review journal article found that children who were 2 years behind, caught up to the national standard after 120 short daily lessons (about 30 instructional hours).

Teacher training on the 9 causes of reading difficulty
You’ve seen children falling behind with their reading even though they’re brilliant at other things in life. The first essential step is to understand why they are struggling. Visit our sister website at David Morgan Education to sign up for a short 5-week course on how to address these common issues.
A word from our founder
”Currently a staggering one in six children never learns to read confidently. And I know how that feels because I was nearly one of them! We estimate from OECD data that around a further 30% of children are held back from achieving their full potential by weak literacy skills. We have spent the past decade perfecting new methods to change those terrible numbers forever. Accepting the status quo should not be an option for anyone involved. I hope you will find pictophonics interesting and useful. Please judge it by testing it or talking to someone who has. The easy way to test it without risk is to put it in front of a child who is not seeing good progress with the older methods. You should then see a breakthrough in just 60-90 sessions.”
