Accredited reading therapist listing on our website and an opportunity to work towards being an "ADVANCED" Phono-Graphix Reading Therapist


If you are a certified Reading Therapist, you can pay R150 for a listing on our website site as an Accredited Phono-Graphix Reading Therapist.



Your accreditation number, together with your contact details will be listed . Visit this page to see how your details would appear on the site.
This listing has proved to be a great way for “start-up” reading therapy practices or those individuals who are wanting to build up their private client base and want potential clients to see that they are linked to a bigger movement, are accredited and associated with an international brand.  Sign up in the member area and complete your user profile with the details that you would like to be uploaded on the site.  Contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information or to confirm your listing.  The listing will be valid until 1 March 2018 when it would be due for renewal at R150 per year.


If you are already accredited and have attended an advance course, please enquire about the application to work towards "Advanced" Reading Therapist Status which will entitle you to a PowerPoint presentation template to give a free talk on Phono-Graphix to your colleagues and/or potential clients. You will also have a separate listing on the "Accredited" page on the website as you work your way up the Phono-Graphix ladder.


Our next Advanced Sound-to-Symbol-to-Meaning workshop will be held in Cape Town at the end of August, KZN in September and in Johannesburg in October. 

The "advanced" workshop is a good refresher on basic concepts, skills and strategies whilst extending your knowledge of Phono-Graphix taking you from Sound-to-Symbol-to-Meaning - helping you to integrate Phono-Graphix into all curriculum areas including creative writing, logical reasoning and comprehension.

If you would like to attend a more in-depth refresher you are always welcome to attend one of our scheduled 1.5 day courses again at no charge. If you trained with us in 2015 or earlier than that and didn’t' start your internship, there might be a "late fee" for you to re-enter into the internship process. We want everyone who has done our course to be certified and utilise the programme fully and will support you as much as possible to achieve this.

Edu Fun and St Peter’s Continue to REACH OUT in Diepsloot every Monday and Tuesday morning!

Our Diepsloot programme has expanded this year thanks to Monica Sloane at St Peter's and Avril Donnelly, the founding member of  EDU FUN. We are now working with Grade 2 and 3 leaners with a larger group of passionate volunteers.

We run a Literacy Hour from 9:30am to 10:30am every Monday and Tuesday during the government school term time and we still NEED a lot of HELP to continue to provide more personalised attention to learners in need and to support the teachers who have 60 kids in their class at any given time … 

We meet at Dainfern Shopping Centre at 9am every Monday and Tuesday morning and car pool to Diepsloot and back by 11am.
