The Wand has moved!

Our popular "learning to read" program, the Wand, is returning to its original creator, Rita Cevasco. When Rita created the Wand for Brave Writer, she was in private practice. Today, she has her own thriving company called Rooted in Language

In reviewing our goals and hers, the Wand fits so beautifully with what she's building, it felt important for Rita to have the rights back to sell and support it. She's also rolling out a brand new phonics program called Pinwheels that dovetails beautifully with the Wand.

You may purchase the Wand here.
