I would not waste my money on Hooked on Phonics---my impression is that it is a program that relies heavily on a parent's ability to consistently spend time administering the program...and it's rather boring so most parents abandon it pretty quickly.

I would suggest to her the Study Dog program, there is an online version and a cd---the cd runs about $45 and I've had many of my parents purchase one or do the online version which has a store where the students can earn prizes (I don't believe in extrinsic rewards but if a parent wants to buy into it....that's their decision). Study Dog is highly engaging and every part of it is academic, there is NO fluff. I've used it for about 8 years and my kinders get SO much out of it at school.
