Lindamood Phonemic Sequencing Program (LiPS) 800-233-1819 Lindamood-Bell
The Lindamood Phonemic Sequencing Program successfully stimulates phonemic awareness. Individuals become aware of the mouth actions which produce speech sounds.? This awareness becomes the means of verifying sounds within words and enables individuals to become self-correcting in reading and spelling, and speech.?
