Seeing Stars® Program for Reading Fluency & Spelling


Your child learned phonics and can sound out words, but he still struggles with reading words on the page.

He continues to have difficulty with remembering sight words and spelling words. His spelling is phonetically accurate, but he can’t remember the visual patterns of words (orthography).

Often he sounds out a word correctly, but doesn’t recognize that same word when he encounters it in the next paragraph.


A cause of difficulty in establishing sight words and contextual fluency is difficulty in visualizing letters in words. This is called weak symbol imagery.

A significant number of students—even those who have well-developed phonemic awareness—have difficulty with rapidly perceiving sounds in words, and are slow to self-correct their reading errors.


Individuals of all ages can experience the symptoms of weak symbol imagery.

This causes weakness in:

  • Memorizing sight words

  • Sounding out words

  • Orthographic awareness

  • Phonemic awareness

  • Contextual reading fluency

  • Orthographic spelling


The Seeing Stars®: Symbol Imagery for Phonemic Awareness, Sight Words, and Spelling Program (SI) successfully develops symbol imagery for reading and spelling.

Long overlooked in the field of reading research, symbol imagery is an important function that can now be assessed and developed.
