Our Sound Reading Programme

The I Can Read System originally came about through research conducted by Antony Earnshaw and Annabel Seargeant. It is structured, cumulative and hierarchical, and is the first system in the world to link clusters of letters to single sounds in a unique manner.

 

The I Can Read reading programme teaches students to combine letters and create invariant sounds, empowering them to take control of their progress.

BLENDING SEQUENCES OF PHONO-GRAPEMES

The I Can Read reading programme helps new readers overcome initial struggles such as combining letters into blended sounds. 
Knowing how to pronounce words is key to overcoming this. 

Our students start with simple, straightforward words and then progress to more difficult phoneme combinations, building upon their successes word by word.

Giving Back To The Community

At I Can Read, we believe that any organised community, business or corporation plays an important part, however small, in contributing to the betterment of the society.

I Can Read with JOY

The I Can Read with JOY programme aims to provide financially-disadvantaged children with the crucial skills necessary for learning to read fluently and independently, while nurturing their self-confidence and love for reading.

What started as a year-long Corporate Social Responsibility initiative back in February 2017 with Ang Mo Kio Family Services Centre (AMKFSC) as a pilot project, we are now partnering with more charitable organisations.

Sponsoring over 100 students from less privileged families by supplementing their studies with I Can Read courses, this initiative allows us to give back to society by helping these students keep up with their studies through an enjoyable learning experience.
