What is Murphy Reading?

The Murphy Reading programme is a multisensory learning programme that parents can use to introduce their children to reading with full comprehension, spelling, writing, sequencing and number line.

Who can use Murphy Reading?

Murphy Reading is suitable for all children up to the age of 7.

Murphy Reading has been used successfully as an introduction to reading for 3 and a half year olds right through to children aged 7, even those who have experienced difficulty and lack of success in learning to read over a long period of time.

Murphy Reading has also been used successfully by parents and Murphy Reading Teachers with children who have a range of learning difficulties such as verbal dyspraxia and other speech and language difficulties and some children with autism and Asperger Syndrome.


Six weeks ago my child could not read any words except his own name and maybe familiar words like Tescos and Mc Donalds, now he can read stories and spell every word that he read.

His confidence has grown and now is not afraid to open any book and start to read.

I found Murphy Reading an amazing experience and huge relief for me. My son repeated Junior Infants and also had covered a lot before starting school and I felt he was struggling and finding learning extremely difficult. As a result of this he had become uninterested and lost complete confidence which of course broke my heart.

Murphy Reading has turned all this around and I am not worried now and very grateful for the chance to do this course. Onwards and upwards!

I got great confidence in myself on how to teach my child. I’ve put it into everyday use without realising sometimes.
