LiPS: Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing Program Fourth Ed Add-Ons

“The instructional content and design of LiPS and the research base supporting its efficacy is strong.”

— Florida Center for Reading Research

The LiPS: Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing® Program for Reading, Spelling, and Speech — Fourth Edition is a comprehensive multisensory program that uses explicit, systematic instruction to develop phonological awareness, decoding, spelling, and reading skills. The goal of LiPS is to develop fluent readers and competent spellers.

The LiPS Program steps are: Setting the Climate for Learning, Identifying and Classifying Consonants, Identifying and Classifying Vowels, Tracking Simple Syllables and Words, Basic Spelling and Reading, Learning Sight Words and Expectancies, Tracking Complex Syllables and Words, Multisyllabic Words, and Reading and Writing in Context. To teach sound–letter associations, the LiPS tasks progress from articulatory movement to sound, then to letter. Through guided discovery techniques, students explore the physical movements involved in producing sounds and learn to hear, see, and feel the physical characteristics of sounds. This in-depth knowledge leads to the student’s ability to understand how words are constructed and to self-correct—essential skills for independent reading and spelling.

For more than 40 years, the  LiPS program has successfully addressed the reading difficulties of a wide range of individuals, including students with functional speech-language delay, second language learning, dyslexia, autism, apraxia, pervasive developmental delay, traumatic brain injury, and stroke. The program’s use with students in grades K-3 has been shown to significantly reduce the need for remedial reading instruction. LiPS can be used with individuals, small groups, and classrooms. It can be used with all ages, from preschool to adult.


The revised Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing® Program for Reading, Spelling, and Speech–Fourth Edition Manual provides theoretical foundations and a detailed description of the LiPS Program steps.

The main parts of the manual include:

  • introduction to the Program,
  • identifying and classifying speech sounds by place and manner of articulation,
  • simple syllables and words,
  • complex syllables and words,
  • spelling, and reading,
  • multisyllable words, and
  • reading for comprehension and spelling in context.

The manual includes outlines and sample dialogue to help students develop phonemic awareness and abilities in reading and spelling. A flash drive accompanies the manual and includes extensive dialogues, chains and word lists, frequently asked questions, and audio and video examples.

The program includes a set of eight illustrated books. Each chapter book contains five or six delightful, fun, and informative short stories written to present English words in a sound-symbol system. The content of each PAS story follows the Vertical Path of sound introduction presented in the LiPS Teacher's Manual:

  • Consonant Sounds: covers the 16 common along with a few less common consonant sounds
  • Vowel Sounds: covers long and short vowels, dialect variations, e, y, and alternate vowel spellings
  • Syllables: covers the nine types of syllables and simple and complex syllables that make up the multi-syllabic words
  • Expectancies: covers the ways real words can be expected to look
  • Sight Words: covers sound-symbol principles established in the LiPS manual

The accompanying Teacher’s Manual provides basic guidelines for successful use of the PAS stories.
