"The Language Tune-Up Kit has saved our son! After
working with a paid tutor for 3 months we decided to try
a software approach and our child's progress began to
skyrocket within 2 weeks. He is able to work with the
program with no assistance and enjoys the positive
reinforcement he gets from it. The reports tell me that he

How the Language tune-Up Kit (LTK) Works
All instruction is provided by prerecorded human
voice, so it's just like working directly with a teacher.
LTK teaches a student how to sound out letter
combinations and make them into words. It does this
through audio, visual and tactile-kinesthetic (learn by
LTK lesson exercises teach skills in word building,
audio recognition (identifying the sounds made by
letter combinations), oral reading of words/sentences
and stories (with questions), dictation (where the
student types phrases/sentences provided by the
program), quizzes and sight words (words that do not
conform to phonetic spelling rules).
Our unique Dictation exercises do not exist in any other

This reading software integrates the K-8 foundation of literacy skills: alphabet (name, formation, sound), phonemic awareness, phonics (explicit,
sequential, simultaneous multisensory), reading and K-8 language arts. Skills are taught and practiced with multiple activities in each lesson with a
game-like assessment at the end of each lesson. Students learn, practice, and apply skills, plus reinforce previous skills. This accelerates the
learning process boosting student achievement and self-esteem.
Home educators and teachers find LTK to be effective for ALL learning styles: for dyslexia /LLD (language learning difficulties), reading problems,

comprehensive foundation that fills in the gaps in their reading capabilities.
Teachers, tutors, and parents truly appreciate this program. The entire Orton-Gillingham curriculum is contained within this reading program and was
closely scrutinized by teachers formally trained in the methodology before being released to the general public. LTK contains user-friendly,
phonics-based lesson plans with the structure, strategies, tips, techniques and rules needed to teach phonics for reading.Orton- Gillingham
strategies and techniques help solve difficulties with letter reversals, auditory shortcomings, spelling, retention, blends, fluency and comprehension.
No other software program teaches the 104 phonemes that are contained within the Language Tune-Up Kit.
