After working with army recruits in the 1970s, an inspired teacher named Walter Bramley realised that many of the young soldiers could not read or write very well. So he set about creating a literacy programme to teach reading, spelling and writing skills. And so the story of Units of Sound began.
Originally produced as cassettes and books, Units of Sound was developed into a computer-based program. The Units of Sound team is now proud to present the latest version, which is online. This makes Units of Sound accessible to all, anywhere and anytime.
Units of Sound will always remain true to the Bramley principles: step by step, small achievable tasks; working at a comfortable level, but one which challenges you and builds on what’s gone before; with lots of overlearning for reinforcement.
