Welcome

Having fun while learning to read!

It’s great fun for children reading and playing these card games and they learn without even realising it!

Whether a child cannot read, has dyslexia or difficulty reading books, these phonic reading games are sure to increase literacy as well as vocabulary and help your children to read.

By playing TRUGS – teach reading using games – anyone who can read can improve any child’s reading.

Joanna Jeffreys –The Inventor of TRUGS

Joanna Jefferies - Inventor of TRUGSJoanna is a qualified teacher with 35 years experience. During her career she had various posts within Primary and Secondary Schools, either whole-class teaching or as a head of dept and specialist one to one teacher. She has been a course co-ordinator for four-day dyslexia courses, has delivered training within schools, colleges of Further Education and Universities. She has an MA in Education, two Diplomas, one in Primary/Secondary development and one in dyslexia. Up until August 2011 she was the Principal of Dyslexia Access, a tuition and assessment centre in Devon. She is an Associate Member of the British Dyslexia Association and a full member of Dyslexia Action and PATOSS.

Joanna became a phonics specialist and an advocator of systematic synthetic phonics through her desire to discover the best way to teach children to read. She quickly realised that children and students want to enjoy the process of learning to read. So she combined the professional side of learning to decode print with the fun side of playing card games and as a result created trugs – teach reading using games.
