Our History

The Toe By Toe teaching method was developed over twenty five years. It arose out of the needs of a teacher whose abundant dedication and patience were still not enough to teach all of her students to be competent readers. Out of the struggle to meet the needs of these children came the recognition of the role played by dyslexia. Consequent upon that recognition came the painstaking development of a system for the teaching of reading which the authors believe to be unsurpassed in its record of success.

Toe By Toe was first published in 1994 since when it has sold over half a million copies.

Toe By Toe is used in more than 70 different countries including:

  • Bahamas
  • Australia
  • New Zealand
  • Kenya
  • Falkland Islands
  • South Africa
  • USA
  • Canada
  • Hong Kong
  • Cyprus
  • Singapore
  • Ireland

“Your Toe By Toe reading program has changed the lives of two of my students. They are excited to learn, more confident in their abilities, and proud of their achievements. It is an absolute pleasure to work with this program. I am floored with the results thus far and am excited to see the progress that I know will continue. Thank you for this gift!”
