New Year, New Blog!

Posted by Brainspring on 15th Jan 2017

Hi everyone,

I hope you all had a wonderful New Year and are off to a great start in 2017!

We have some exciting changes happening this year! The first is that RLAC has finally become Brainspring! You might remember a blog post about this months ago (guess I jumped the gun a little announcing that one), and it finally happened! Same team, same ownership, new name. And Phonics First is still Phonics First. If you are lucky enough to be using Phonics First, nothing is different. For those of you who aren’t familiar with our company, we used to be known as Reading and Language Arts Centers (RLAC). “Reading and Language Arts Centers” is quite a mouthful though, and doesn’t represent many of the educational services offered, so we’ve updated our look with Brainspring.  You can learn more about our company at our new website

We are also making changes to our blog.  We have set up an awesome calendar with a theme for each month.  We will be featuring blog posts, multisensory activities and videos from many Brainspring instructors and tutors.  I will continue on as a guest blogger, but I am also embarking on a new set of adventures myself.  I will pursuing some new opportunities and turning my attention behind the scenes to developing reading programs and products.

So exciting!


Stay tuned for the new blog format and this month’s theme: Handwriting and Cursive.  For additional information on handwriting and cursive, visit us on our Facebook page, Brainspring Educator Academy.

All the best to you and your students in 2017,
