Affordable, interesting and fully decodable stories to support systematic teaching of phonics for adults and teens, that’s the TAP Library. Books atย our levels 2 and 3ย (the phonics progression planned is outlined on this page) are especially hard to find so our initial goal is to grow this series of decodable books at those levels. Adults and teens with dyslexia and other learning difficulties will love these apps designed by experts with their needs in mind.
