Sarah is currently speaking at colleges, schools, and various human service organizations regarding her cross-linguistic research and how it relates to literacy in this country. She specifically addresses how you can help your child or student become a fluent, confident reader by utilizing this information, along with current evidence-based practices. Her workshops are highly engaging and meaningful.

An expanded workshop was approved for professional development by the Center for Early Learning Professionals in Rhode Island. The workshop is entitled Rime and Reason: Innovative Techniques for Creating a Strong Foundation for Literacy and is approved for two professional development hours.

She also visits schools to meet with students that are reading her books!

“Sarah’s fresh, research-based ideas on literacy and reading were gripping, creative, and relevant!  Her innovative take on rimes was somewhat of an experiment for us, but an opportunity we were glad to take!  While other facilitators lock in to a stale PowerPoint, Sarah breathed life into her content with visuals, hands-on materials, reciprocal conversation, and a multi-modal approach that left participants reflecting long afterwards on the impact of her program!  It was as meaningful as it was provocative!” Christopher D. Salaun, Professional Development Specialist, Children’s Friend

Sarah Blodgett recently presented at the 56th Annual Correctional Education Association Region 1 that the New Jersey Chapter of the Correctional Education Association hosted at the Grand Hotel in Cape May, New Jersey on May 31 through June 2, 2017. Her workshops were well received by all of the educators who attended her workshops. As an educator, I really appreciate Sarah’s dedication in completing thousands of hours of research to develop a system in order to assist her son to not only read but to enjoy it! I have been an educator for over 40 years with over 35 years working with students who have difficulty reading. I highly recommend the method that Sarah Blodgett has developed to assist students who struggle to read. Kevin Kavanaugh, NJ Correctional Education Association President, Deputy Director Region 1 Correctional Education Association

I found Sarah K. Blodgett’s Noah Text extremely intriguing. I have never seen a text or teaching strategy that took the approach of building syllables in words to assist struggling readers, and I thought it was such a useful resource. Workshop Participant​

I was very intrigued by Sarah K. Blodgett’s talk. I was interested in how her books were specialized to help children with dyslexia and I would love to see if one day all books could come in the form of Noah Text. Workshop Participant​

Sarah K. Blodgett, creator of Noah Text, was extremely educational. From her, I learned how you can aid children to read in more advantageous ways so children do not remain behind. Workshop Participant​

I found Sarah Blodgett’s talk extremely interesting. I plan to use this information in the future when I teach. Workshop Participant

I like that you can give books out in a classroom and nobody knows if the books are in regular text or Noah Text. I think this is a great learning tool for speech and language pathologists and special education programs. Workshop Participant​

In my profession, if I ever needed to help a child with their reading skills, I would definitely direct them toward Noah Text. Workshop Participant​ 

Not only do I now know about this great program that could be a resource to families that I work with in the future, but I have been encouraged to take steps towards things that matter. Workshop Participant​
