An AVKO membership looks to be a good value if you use their products or prescribe to their method of teaching reading and spelling. I already use a reading and spelling program that has a philosophy I am comfortable with, and I had a hard time reconciling the AVKO method with it. But It might benefit those who have not found a method that strikes a chord with them. An individual membership costs $25.00/year and includes many resources.
- 25% discount on all printed AVKO material
- Hundreds of dollars of free ebooks
- AVKO newsletter with freebies, discounts, and resources
- Access to Don McCabe's workshop recordings
- Supplemental curriculum materials including word games, worksheets, activities, and more
- Access to pretest and placement tests
- Access to the Answer Keys for the Unscramblers and Family Reunion exercises of the Engaging Language Kits
