- The Teach me Speech Sounds Manual
Teaches all 26 consonant speech sounds. This instructional manual features a Phonic All Star character, their hand signal for therapy, and teaches how this speech sound is made in the mouth.

- The Phonic All Star Flash Cards (Level One)
These 46 brightly coloured cartoon flashcards are absolutely central to the Phonic All Star speech and literacy as they represent the 46 speech sounds making up the Australian phonetic alphabet. There are 24 consonants and 22 vowels. These cards are used in multiple speech therapy activities to “build the speech sound grid” which is a vital step to correction of the speech and literacy impairment. These are the cards we flip and practice for accuracy and race for speed! The cards are sold with instructional information about the method and purpose of therapy, you can also buy them already made to save time.
- The Phonic All Star Flash Cards (Level Two)
These level 2 Phonic All Star flashcards have a different design and purpose in the program. They welcome children to learn about spelling conventions and spelling choices that each speech sound demonstrates (eg. vowel “er” can be spelled er/”her“, ur/”burn”, or/”world”, ir/”girl”, ear/”pearl “)… These cards are a tool to link this level of spelling skill for spelling that starts to get confusing for kids. They are the central tool among a kit of resources that support children in learning their literacy skills. They are best used in conjunction with the “speech sounds folder Guide or wall poster” that connects the speech sounds to the cards on a guide that the children can use in their classroom and when doing their homework.
- The Phonic All Star Folder guides and wall charts
The Phonic All Star folder guides and Wall Charts are used to support student with their literacy whilst actively at work in the classroom or at home. They summarise the Phonic All Star characters and the letter and speech sounds that they teach.
There are two types:
The alphabet letter Guides: Teaches students information about the 26 alphabet letters, their symbols (graphemes), 21 consonants, 5 vowels, upper and lower case letter relationship, long-short vowel relationships, the alphabet sequence and digraphs (th, sh, ch, ng) whilst supports them by hinting the associated speech sound using the Phonic All Star character. The reverse side lets them fly solo without the cues.
The Speech Sound Guide: Teaches the 46 speech sounds which include 24 consonant phonemes, 22 vowel phonemes and 2 mixture sounds (x-q). These are divided into groups based on how the speech sounds are created (manner of speech production). The individual character images connect to a number which identifies it to the level Flashcards housing the spelling choice/variation information for literacy lessons. This is a MUST HAVE resource for children with dyslexia and dysgraphia to support them in the act of their writing and reading on their desk.
Folder Guides: These are A4 sized designed to go in the students folder between classes.
Wall charts: These are A3 sized designed to go on the wall or for student to work on the desk with.
