The Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing® (LiPS®) program provides students specific intruction in phonemic awareness. Phonemic awareness is the ability to distinguish phonemes (single speech sounds) in spoken patterns (i.e. sound-symbol association). The National Reading Panel has found that phonemic awareness improves children's word reading and reading comprehension, as well as helps children learn to spell. Phonemic awareness is the basis for learning phonics. Phonemic awareness is necessary for students to be able to recognize a mismatch between what they see and what they say when reading, and what they say and what they write when spelling.
Students in the LiPS® program move through a series of steps to learn how their mouths produce the sounds of language. The program uses feedback from ear, eye, and mouth to assist in the development of phonological awareness. The LiPS® program integrates auditory processing (phonological processing or word attack), visual procsessing (orthographic processing and word recognition), and language processing (contextual reading and vocabulary) which leads to comprehension.
The process-based instruction provided by the LiPS® program has proven successful for individuals exhibiting symptoms of dyslexia, ADHD, Autism, Central Auditory Processing Disorder and other learning difficulties.
