Which Braintastic Reading Success CD do I choose?
Help your child to be the very best reader they can:
Beginning Reader! Start with CDs ONE and TWO and then progress to THREE and FOUR. Start your child on their reading journey and let them progress through carefully structured step-by-step activities.
Emerging Reader! Start at CD ONE or TWO and work through the CDs to their level. Fill in any skill gaps and then develop and broaden their reading skills.
Struggling Reader! Start at CD ONE and work through the activities in order. Struggling readers often have specific learning gaps and it is vital that these are addressed before progressing to CDs TWO, THREE and FOUR.
Power Reader! Choose a CD above their age. For older children CDs FIVE and SIX will enrich their reading lives! Let them make the most of their reading talent by challenging and stimulating them with a diverse range of reading material.

Braintastic Reading Success does what a book cannot do and goes beyond phonics!
· Uses a version of BRAINtastic! that enables the use of Integrated Speech. It's like having a teacher sit and read to each child!
· Instructions are clearly spoken and can be replayed if required
· Children can hear what a word or letter sounds like
· Sound reinforcement is even built into corrections!
· CDs FIVE and SIX do not have sound reinforcement as children at this stage are moving from verbalisation “hearing” to “thinking” what the words are saying
