History of EPC

The I Love Reading program is based on the © English Phonetic Code, the well-researched, data supported work of the Mamone family.

Jeff Davis (current Executive Head of College at Hillcrest Christian College) identified the uniqueness, innovation and incredible potential of the EPC many years ago upon meeting Joe Mamone, the creator. With the support of Joe and his incredible knowledge and understanding of the English language and sound, coupled with a tremendous team of educators, ILR is now a well-developed, user-friendly, resource rich program available to schools, kindergartens and parents.

Joe's dream, and the goal of ILR is to provide the opportunity for every child to learn to read in order to access education and knowledge to equip them for future success.
