Dr Marlynne Grant has practised for many years as a Local Authority Educational Psychologist, has conducted research into systematic synthetic phonics and has created the government-approved Sound Discovery® and Rapid Phonics programmes using her extensive experience of working with children. 

She was an Associate of the English Hubs Training Centre and provided EHTC training with her co-presenter Jackie Day, in some of the most disadvantaged areas of England.  During the pandemic she and Jackie wrote e-learning training packages to provide this training remotely.  They also made demonstration phonics lessons available on YouTube, in addition to sample lessons and decodable books from a totally new venture: child-friendly, active phonics lessons with decodable stories.
