|Phonics In A
Box is written by a teacher for very busy teachers.
The author, Jane Lydman Emsbo,
has been in and out of multitudes of classrooms for many
years teaching, diagnosing and helping students and training
reading teachers. She realized that reading teachers often
are swamped with prescribed phonics programs to follow, assessments
to give, and individual needs to attend to. In overload,
they yearn for easy, practical, effective materials to complement
their existing phonics, spelling or reading curriculum.
Thus, Phonics In A Box was born.
Jane Lydman Emsbo is
a Fellow in The Academy of Orton-Gillingham. She has been

Disability Teacher and Consultant, diagnostician and educational
therapist in private practice, Education Director at Windward
