When a child learns to ride a bike, does the child learn the skills of steering, pedaling, and balancing separately? No, children learn the skills together, with support. Similarly, children will see the "big picture" of reading if they understand the complexity but have hints to help.

My mother was a reading tutor for many years and developed a reading method using colors in the 80s. Students of all ages and abilities were very successful in learning to read. I've improved the colors in my mom's method to accommodate colorblind students. Also, I created letter styles for the colors that will be distinct in black/white, and created ready-to-use games and activities for classroom teachers and homeschool families.
