We also use the Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing ® Program for reading, spelling and speech (LIPS®) which stimulates phonemic awareness. Our students learn to become aware of the mouth actions which produce speech sounds. This awareness can assist with self-correcting in reading and spelling, and speech.
