  1. ANN, thanks for the coverage. I do advocate the Phonics base Approach to the teaching of reading. This approach meets the needs of the remedial readers. It teachers struggling readers the relationship between letters and sounds. It caters for them and re-mediates the issues they have with being unable to read.
