The Odyssey School just outside Baltimore is an independent K-8 school for students with dyslexia and other learning differences.

To teach students to read, they utilize a reading intervention strategy called Phono-Graphix.

Here, Gaby Edwards, a speech language pathologist at the school, explains how this approach works, and discusses the results the school has seen in their students.
