Why & How CAPIT Work
Visual Mnemonics: Cognitive Super Glue
Research and experience indicate that Visual Mnemonics are an efficient and fun method of helping students remember the relationship between the sound of a letter and its visual representation. CAPIT Reading provides unique Visual Mnemonics for every letter in the English language.

CAPIT is a Curriculum, Because Learning to Read is Not a Game.
We removed the Virtual World, the Animated Characters, and the Extrinsic Rewards such as currencies and badges.
CAPIT is NOT A GAME. It's a Curriculum that engages students BY learning, and NOT by external motivators. In every interface, students are Reading, Writing, Spelling, and Typing.
CAPIT is 100% LEARNING 100% OF THE TIME.

Less is More
A simple principle guided our development: Less is More, also known as Cognitive Load Theory (Sweller, 2003, see also Centre for Education Statistics and Evaluation, 2017).
Cognitive Load Theory (CLT) enabled us—no—forced us, to create a unique phonics curriculum that teaches students to read Without Verbal instructions. It also informed our decision in creating a phonics curriculum that is 100% Learning 100% of the Time. Cognitive Load Theory (CLT) guided, informed, and shaped every aspect of our program.
