I am gratified to finally find someone to articulate what I have been feeling for a long time. As a Spec, Ed. teacher, I have taken it upon myself to seek out and be trained in systematic, multi-sensory, phonetically based reading programs. I have been trained in Phono-Graphix, Project Read, and Wilson. I am totally frustrated by the inability of many teachers who are teaching reading to primary grade children, but have little or no knowledge about sounds and the correct way to say sounds. While this may be OK for the majority of students, the ones who are struggling will struggle even more. Colleges that prepare primary teachers, must do a better job.

Our school systems often don't individualize the educational planning and may miss many kids with dyslexia and other LDs.
