Learn how to teach the foundational skills for reading success at home!

You can make a difference in your child’s life.

          “PFLC is life altering for any child, adult, parent, educator, or administrator that is willing to take the time to learn how to teach a child to read, write, and spell. Taking the time to not only learn the background knowledge is important, but moving from knowledge to application is what sets PFLC apart from any college class, LETRS training, or professional development. Take the opportunity to change your life, and every child’s life, for the better.” – DAWN BURKE, M.Ed., Literacy Intervention Specialist, The Confident Approach L.L.C 

Explore The Sound Case!

Now more than ever your kids need your help and support to help them learn to read, write and spell. The Phillips Fundamental Learning Center can help with The Sound Case™. The Sound Case kit is being used by professionals to teach children to read, by teachers in schools and by parents doing home schooling.

For one hour a day, you can continue to support your child's efforts to learn to read, and even get younger children in your house engaged in the lessons. The Sound Case is appropriate for children ages 5-8 who have dyslexia, are struggling to read or who are just learning to read.

"I feel like this program is vital to pre-readers because you’re teaching them how language works and how learning works. It’s so much fun that I don’t think Alex (5) realized he was doing work. I think it speaks volumes to the design of this program that my child intuitively liked doing it." 

— Sarah Collins, mother

When Jeanine's 5-year-old son, Cooper, was diagnosed with dyslexia in the '80s, there was no help for their family where they lived in Kansas. Jeanine was able to travel to Texas to train in a curriculum that gave Cooper the life-changing gift of reading. But she saw many other parents who did not have the funds or schedule flexibility to help their children in the same way. Jeanine and her friend, Gretchen Andeel, started Phillips Fundamental Learning Center to help Kansas families, but with the online training it offers, The Sound Case can reach families far and wide.

Ava's Success Story

"We see lots of change now. She can say letter sounds, and you can recognize her name when she writes it. It’s impressive to see the progression of handwriting when we look at what she just recently did compared to the first letters she attempted." 

    — Kim, mother of Ava,

who  received instruction

using The Sound Case


Ava, 6, was born early, and she experienced some delays in speech and language development.

Her mother, Kim, was used to hearing she was behind. That is until she began learning foundational reading skills using The Sound Case. For the first time, Ava excelled.

An expert kindergarten teacher's thoughts on The Sound Case:

"The kids start to recognize words and remember, 'Oh that was in our other book.' It's phenomenal how they recall the words. The other thing my students absolutely love is the extension activity at the end of each lesson. But more than just being fun is how much The Sound Case is actually helping the children become ready to read."
