This website describes the "fonetik" remedial spelling system originally endorsed, published and distributed by the then New Zealand's Special Education Service.

Written by one of its educational psychologist's, Craig Cameron Jackson, it teaches failing spellers aged 7 and above how to spell a word phonetically, 'just as it sounds' which results in a decipherable spelling, that can be read and understood, equally as well as a correctly-spelt word. 

A leading international authority on spelling has descibed 'fonetik' as the easiest to teach programme, yet devised. The teaching steps are simple and easily learnt by students at the mid primary level and above.

The programme is designed to be used in conjunction with the latest electronic word processing technologies.
