is a modification and extension of DISTAR® (Direct Instruction System for Teaching, Achievement and Remediation).

Children easily move step–by–step with phonics (sounds for letters) and learn the essential skills (left out of other phonics programs) to blend the sounds into words. Built on this unique phonics foundation, children quickly start to read those words in fully illustrated stories. This book was designed to be user–friendly for parents, grandparents, tutors or others who want to teach young (3– to 6–year old) non–readers. The book contains 100 twenty–minute lessons that are clearly color–coded and scripted (including how to motivate, teach, and correct) so that both you and the child you are teaching can be successful. How successful? After kids complete the 100 lessons they read on a solid second grade level. Although the book alone can be used, Dr. Phyllis Haddox, co–author, has also developed supplemental materials—training video, training audio, flashcards, and full–sized sounds sheets.
