The Lindamood Phonemic Sequencing® (LiPS) Program (formerly called the ADD Program, Auditory Discrimination in Depth) successfully stimulates phonemic awareness. Individuals become aware of the mouth actions that produce speech sounds, and this awareness becomes the means of verifying sounds within words. It enables individuals to become self-correcting in reading, spelling, and speech.

It is common for individuals to gain several grade levels in decoding ability in four to six weeks of intensive instruction, or to make further gains in speech/language ability after hitting a plateau under traditional speech therapy.
