Itchy’s Alphabet® phonics program evolved through the thirty-four years that founder, Brenda Larson, worked with children who struggled to learn their letter sounds.

Armed with the knowledge that about 65% of individuals are visual learners, Brenda started drawing pictures, in the shape of the letters, to give children a visual cue to remember. Not only did the students show improved mastery of their sounds, but they were also able to retrieve the shape of the letter by remembering the picture cue – spelling and printing both improved.

KidsRead2Kids was founded by Dyslexic and ADHD siblings to bring the joy and confidence back to the struggling reader.

KidsRead2Kids provides free video-audio books read by kids for kids - filmed chapter by chapter for easy listening. A great resource for both homeschooling parents and primary teachers.

The Word Wasp and Hornet Literacy Primer were developed to meet the needs of students with moderate to severe reading and spelling problems, including dyslexia.

It couldn't be more simple: A student needs a Wasp or Hornet, an exercise book, and a pencil. A coach needs scrap paper, a pencil and a little patience. The programme can be used daily or weekly.


The Dog on a Log Book series helps kids, including kids with dyslexia, learn to read. They are sound out books that start with just a few phonics rules.

DOG ON A LOG Books follow a Structured Literacy/Orton-Gillingham based phonics sequence. Gameboards, flashcards, and other activities can be downloaded from our Printables Pages.
