Join the Revolution!
At the American Youth Literacy Foundation, our game changing reading tools reinvent the way phonics is taught, making it easy, pain free and stress free for young children to learn how to read.
So if you believe in our youth, and you believe in educational equality, and you believe that literacy is the gateway to freedom, and that illiteracy is an unconscionable injustice, then talk to us about a solution that is as simple as training wheels and that will scale to reach millions of children, talk to us about reading, the literacy crisis, the education crisis, global literacy, global ESL, phonemic awareness, phonics, the REAL science of reading, how to solve one of the most difficult social crises of our time, the 1.2 million high school students who drop out of our public schools each year, our broken English code, 24% illiteracy among 2nd-9th grade public school students, more than 60% combined illiteracy and functional illiteracy among all public school students, how to REALLY change the reading learning equation, how to make a REAL difference not only within our lifetimes, but within the next decade, how to save one child, or thousands of children or millions of children from becoming illiterate, how to teach one child or thousands or millions of children how to read without stress, anxiety or frustration! Talk to us about starting a literacy revolution in your home, neighborhood, community, pre-school or daycare center, private school, homeschool, charter school or public school.
You'll hear lots of people talking about disruptors, interruptors and revolutionaries, but when the rubber meets the road, they fear change and become the staunch defenders of the status quo. The status quo has gotten us nowhere and is destroying the lives of our children and the fabric of our nation.
We'll show you an exponentially better way of teaching reading that's 1,000 years overdue, will provide your child and / or your students with a faster, simpler, easier way to learn phonemic awareness, phonics, blending, segmentation, basic decoding, fluency and comprehension. It's called FUNetix and if you're an individual or using our curriculum for non-commercial purposes, it's free! We could charge you thousands of dollars for our materials; but we're not starting a corporation, we're starting a revolution! And you, and ALL of the high school students, the college students AND the adults who've gone through our training over the past 7 years and who have taught thousands of kids how to read are a part of that revolution. Jump to this link to access our 12 hour comprehensive training and certification program and download our comprehensive reading curriculum for free, so that you can become a literacy expert too. We'll teach you EVERYTHING you need to know about how to teach reading to children.
We're not saying there aren't a lot of good reading programs out there, ones that teach phonics without training wheels; we're just saying they're frustrating, painful and don't scale past the 50% mark for the general population. They require intensive adult intervention; and for those children who don't receive this kind of attention, they fail. They fail, they will continue to fail, and there's no wishful thinking or good intentions that will change 50 years of hard data. More than 60% of American students are failing at reading.
What we ARE saying is that if you're not using FUNetix, the Phonibet and Kindercode (the 3 components of our patented comprehensive reading decoding system), then you might as well be riding a horse and buggy instead of driving a Tesla; you might as well be trying to teach your own 4 year old child how to ride a bike without training wheels. Good luck with that! You will definitely need a lot of bandaids and popsicles for the skinned knees and bruised ego.

What's old is new again. The fundamentals of reading and writing have never actually changed. It's only we who lost our way. Reading is simple. It's not rocket science. Any 5 year old can learn how.
