Learn to Spell with Spelling Patterns

“We enrolled in the Spelling and Phonics Program because my son couldn’t spell even simple words. Lo and behold, he can spell them and a lot more now. He ‘gets’ how we put letters together to make words. And, thankfully, he doesn’t have to memorize 30 spelling rules! The video and audio lessons are like have a private tutor in our home.

Wendy R., AZ

I got the Spelling and Phonics program for myself. Spelling has always been hard for me. I’ve tried many different spelling programs over the years. This one worked. Spelling is much easier now. I no longer make the spelling mistakes I have been ‘famous’ for.  What a difference this has made in my life. I actually understand spelling. Thanks, Bonnie!”

Learn the secret to learning spelling and phonics

As a parent, you love to see your child succeed. You feel their pain and often lose sleep worrying when they struggle. You know that spelling is important and that the inability to spell can hold your child back in learning. Spelling is often especially difficult for those with dyslexia, auditory processing problems, or learning disabilities.

Most of the time, spelling is taught by sheer memorization of spelling words and spelling rules. For me, I can’t remember how to spell every word in the English language. Memorizing and using 29 spelling rules can be difficult. But, I discovered that we only put letters together 8 different ways to make words. When you learn the 8 spelling patterns, spelling becomes incredibly easier.

ASW Spelling Program Provides More than Spelling Help…

Problems with learning spelling are typically caused by one or more areas of perception that impact learning. In this ASW Program, you address those areas of visual, auditory, and tactile-kinesthetic perception. You will learn the skills you are missing in 20 minutes a day with simple activities.
