Agility With Sound Reading 1148

Why use it?

Agility with Sound is the creation of trained teacher Betsy Sewell, whose children faced their own battles with dyslexia.

Betsy has worked with hundreds of children who struggled with reading: teaching them and listening to their stories. She has seen the anguish of their parents and care-givers turn to joy as their children progressed towards capable reading.

The Agility with Sound programme is a product of Betsy’s experiences and years of research, all with a single goal: help children achieve reading success!

What are people saying?

One of our boys came to show me a word he had spelled using the Agility With Sound tiles. It was 12 letters long and very impressive. He looked like he’d won lotto. I don’t think he stopped smiling all day!

Judy Sachdeva, SENCO, Prebbleton School

Agility With Sound is very easy to manage because the planning is already done: it’s hands-on and in levels.

Our children have progressed significantly in reading levels, and their writing as well. It has had a huge effect on the children’s fluency.
