  • PAF has been a complete game-changer for my reading and phonics instruction. Before I started using this program, I had students who just weren’t making progress in reading, no matter what I tried. Once I started implementing PAF, these students quickly started to make huge gains. PAF is easy to implement as a teacher, and it’s very engaging for students. Even my most reluctant readers enjoy learning through PAF, and their reading confidence has improved enormously. It’s amazing to see students feeling excited to read. I can’t recommend this program enough!
