Many years ago when I was a new homeschooler, I attended Andrew Pudewa's Spelling and the Brain session at a local homeschool conference, and the information stuck with me. A few years later, I realized my oldest child needed spelling help, and I immediately turned to Phonetic Zoo to get through to him. It worked! And now as a homeschool blogger, I recommend many of IEW's products because they are engaging and well-researched, and they produce results!
