WHAT IS ILR?
I Love Reading is a unique literacy program designed to facilitate the rapid learning of reading English.
This program takes the complexity out of the English language and makes decoding words easier and faster by helping early learners to grasp the English language from a young age.
The I Love Reading program takes the English Phonetic Code, technology developed by the Mamone family, and packages it into a practical and easily understood resource for literacy development.
Through the ILR program, students quickly move from 'Learning to Read' to 'Reading to Learn'. From here, the rate of learning increases and the learning environment becomes a place of engaged students exploring educational concepts, skills and ideas, years ahead of their expected levels.

ILR IN ACTION
The ILR Program supports young readers on their journey to literacy.
Cooper is currently 6 years of age and completing Year 1. He is reading at an advanced level; with a reading age of 11 years. The Engligh Phonetic Code not only allows Cooper to read and decode words more easily, it also helps him develop a deeper understanding of what he is reading. This will help him as he moves from 'Learning to Read' to 'Reading to Learn'.
