Living With a Struggling Reader
Helping our kids learn to read with fluency and confidence can be difficult, especially if our child struggles and doesn’t enjoy reading. As struggling readers progress and move up grade levels in school, the disparity between their lack of reading skills and others in their class may widen. This is the time when we realize something needs to be done.

About Viva Phonics
I’m Angelica and I created this online reading intervention program when I started working 1:1 with students who struggled with reading. I found that many times students were being sent home with sight word lists that had no logical pattern and included words that could easily be decoded. Students weren’t able to blend simple words and when they didn’t know a word they would just guess!
The only way to fill the skills gaps was to relearn to read. Starting from scratch ensured that students had the foundational skills needed to grasp more complex concepts within the Viva Phonics program and beyond.
After more than a century of frustration, it has now been shown that the brain can be rewired and that struggling children can become skilled readers. Sally Shaywitz, M.D., Overcoming Dyslexia
Based on the Science of Reading
Teaching phonics in an explicit, systematic way has been proven to be the most effective method for teaching reading. The program follows a well-planned system that progresses from simple to complex building blocks.
For Readers of All Ages
The online phonics resources can be used with students of all ages. The program is designed with older struggling readers in mind. Older students stay motivated to work on the targeted literacy skills without feeling self-conscious about their current reading ability.
Focused and Direct
Each lesson introduces one new skill and the decodable sentences and stories allow the student to practice previously taught concepts. The student can take as long as needed to master each section.
