The Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing® Program
for Reading, Spelling and Speech (LiPS®)

Problem

John is unable to read and spell words to his potential. He has been labeled "dyslexic" or "learning disabled." Despite numerous attempts to teach him, John cannot decode written words and has to guess from memory or context cues.

Cause

A primary cause of decoding and spelling problems is difficulty in judging sounds within words. This is called weak phonemic awareness. This weakness in phonological processing causes individuals to omit, substitute, and reverse sounds and letters within words. This is also a cause of difficulty in learning a second language. Individuals with weak phonological processing cannot get the words off the page: they cannot judge whether what they say matches what they see.

Symptoms

Many children and adults have difficulty judging sounds within words. Although they see letters correctly, they cannot detect and correct their errors in reading and spelling.

This causes:


• Decoding
Errors such as "steam" for stream, "imagination" for immigration, "claps" for clasps, etc.

• Spelling
Errors such as "gril" for girl, "cret" for correct, "eqeutment" for equipment, etc.

• Pronunciation
Errors such as "death" for deaf, "flusterated" for frustrated, etc.

Solution


The Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing® (LiPS®) Program successfully stimulates phonemic awareness. Individuals become aware of the mouth actions which produce speech sounds. This awareness becomes the means of verifying sounds within words and enables individuals to become self-correcting in reading and spelling, and speech.

It is common for individuals to gain several grade levels in decoding ability in four weeks to six weeks of intensive instruction, or to make further gains in speech-language after hitting a plateau under traditional speech therapy.
