The powerful mnemonic methods (memory tricks) and materials of this structured, research based program are designed to accelerate the acquisition of literacy for everyone — especially those with learning problems. This program represents the culmination of over 30 years of work with thousands of students in a wide range of instructional settings. The program was originally created in response to the unique educational requirements of special needs students. Subsequently, during many years of extensive planning, development, and implementation, the methods and materials were configured into an instructional system that is appropriate for anyone.
