Phonics First reading system, developed by Brainspring (an IMSLEC Accredited MSL program), is a multisensory, systematic, structured, sequential, phonics-based, direct-instruction approach to teaching beginning, at-risk, struggling, learning disabled, dyslexic and ELL readers.
Rooted in the Orton-Gillingham principles of instruction, Phonics First uses scientifically research-based learning strategies to teach students systematic processes for decoding (reading) and encoding (spelling). Students who use the Phonics First system make significant gains in reading and spelling while building a lifelong understanding of the structure of language.
