SSP 'Code Mapping' is a patented technique that shows the student how each word is segmented (where the graphemes are in words) This aligns with the IPA segmentation of words. 
 

The International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) is a system where each symbol is associated with a particular English speech sound. The IPA shows us how to pronounce a certain word in English. This helps ESL students with English pronunciation, but also helps make reading and spelling easier !
 

Monster Mapping takes this even further ! The Speech Sound Monsters shows the student WHICH phonemes each grapheme represents !  Again, this aligns with the IPA.

What makes this SO EFFECTIVE is that students do not get confused with pictures that link with letters of the alphabet eg 's for snake, a for ant' etc. The child may forget the word, or have poor phonemic awareness and not understand the relevance of the 'sound' they are told to say when they see the image. They can also become confused with the specific linked letter. Miss Emma has talked about this extensively, for example mentioned here in this video for parents. (Start at the 5 minute mark)

These Speech Sound Monsters are all linked with a phonetic symbol. The IPA is an internationally recognised way to represent sounds, not letters. 
Every word we say consists of these smallest units (phonemes)
Although some phonetic symbols look like letters of the alphabet, they actually represent a generic speech sound (phoneme) There are 46 Speech Sound Monster Cards.
