We Are Thrilled to Introduce the Free, “Learn-To-Read” App, Called FUNetix®


Today, we are super excited to announce the universal availability of a new “Learn-to-Read” app that is the culmination of 17 years of working to battle the illiteracy crisis in America.  At the American Youth Literacy Foundation (AYLF), hundreds of volunteers have worked tirelessly over the past year to bring this “onramp to literacy,” to your child, for FREE!

Our app is based on a patented curriculum that reduces the time it takes to learn how to read, to just hours.  Tested and proven for more than 17 years with thousands of children of diverse cultures, backgrounds, ethnicities and socioeconomic status, the app re-engages the phonemic awareness and phonics components of teaching English literacy, using a diacritic pronunciation approach that aligns with the, now understood, neuroscience of how the brain processes, stores, understands, codifies and decodes written language.

This 100% free, “Learn-to-Read” app, called The FUNetix 12 Hour Reading App, is available in the App Store and Google Play.  All you have to do is download the FUNetix app and play it with your child, or let them play it by themselves; or, sign up to be paired with one of our “distance learning” high school or middle school tutors for FREE, and they will walk through the app with your child, who can be reading at a 2nd grade level in just 12 hours!

FUNetix and AYLF are dedicated to teaching every child in America how to read, for FREE, before they finish the 3rd grade.  This is our mission and purpose; and we are here to help YOU!
