Want help to stop mispronouncing words?

Phonics based reading programs are very good for people who do not have a problem with the area of their brain that is used to encode and decode words using sound (the Broca's area).  If, however, you have a difficulty in this area you will struggle to remember the correct way to say a word and to manipulate sounds within words to emphasize meaning.   Trouble in this area will affect your reading, spelling and speech.  

Do you:

  • mispronounce words
  • avoid using words because you can't remember how to say them
  • have difficulty learning a foreign language
  • have flat and monotonous sounding speech
  • have difficulty blending and segmenting the sounds of words and/or
  • have difficulty in thinking and talking at the same time? 

How the Arrowsmith Program treats your phoniological difficulties:

The Broca's Speech Pronunciation exercise in the Arrowsmith Program strengthens this area of the brain and:

  • improves your capacity for hearing the sounds in words
  • your sound-symbol correspondence improves
  • your phonemic memory, necessary for the phonetic aspect of reading, develops
  • your ability to pronounce multi-syllabic words improves 
  • your ability to read with greater oral expression improves
