Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing® Program
for Reading, Spelling, and Speech (LiPS®)

The contribution of the LiPS® Program is the development of an oral-motor, visual, and auditory feedback system that enables all students to prove the identity, number, and order of phonemes in syllables and words. It is more basic and more extensive than traditional phonics programs.

Despite numerous attempts to teach him, John struggles with sounding words. When he attempts to read on the page, he guesses or uses context cues. He has been labeled as “dyslexic.”

A primary cause of decoding and spelling problems is difficulty judging sounds within words. This is called weak phonemic awareness. Weak phonemic awareness causes individuals to add, omit, substitute, and reverse sounds and letters within words.

SYMPTOMS
3

Many children and adults experience the symptoms of weak phonemic awareness.

This causes weakness in:

  • Recognizing sameness/difference of phonemes
  • Discriminating the identity, number, and order
    of sounds within words
  • Blending sounds
  • Word attack
  • Spelling
  • Syllabication
SOLUTION

The LiPS® Program teaches students to discover and label the oral-motor movements of phonemes. Students can then verify the identity, number, and sequence of sounds in words.

Once established, phonemic awareness is then applied to reading, spelling, and speech.

 

  • It is a joy to go to a school board meeting and have reports back for the first time
    where you see kids moving out of far-below basic, out of basic, into basic and proficient.
    As a school board member and a dad, I just want to say thank you.

Who can we help?

We work with children and adults of all ages and levels.

Some students come to us with general learning challenges or a previous diagnosis such as dyslexia or autism spectrum disorder.

Some students come to us to enhance their skills or to just make learning easier.
