After mastering the basics of reading, it's time to jump into phonics. Phonics is the set of skills that decode a group of letters into the sounds of a word. At Phonics for Free, we have organized phonics into simple skills, created tests to measure these skills and developed hundreds of worksheets to teach phonics skills. This allows you to target those skills that are weak, maximizing your gain and minimizing your effort. You only study the lessons that are needed. Click on any of the Phonics sections to access an extensive index of reading tests and phonics worksheets that may be printed free of charge. For more detailed information, read the Helpful Hints page.
An expanded reading site called [Learning Target] includes all of the Phonics for Free pages plus worksheets and placement tests covering word structure, vocabulary and comprehension skills. The Learning Target site also contains information on common learning disabilities such as aphasia, autism, attention deficit disorder (ADD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and dyslexia. It presents a general overview of learning problems and discusses diet, food allergy, preservatives, vitamins, supplements, prescription drugs and strategies. All of this information is made available as a public service by Rybett Controls, Inc. We are located in the the town of Chatsworth, just north of Los Angeles, California.
