Noah Text® allows readers to see sound-parts within words, providing a way for struggling readers to decode and enunciate words that might otherwise be difficult to access. The resulting improvements in reading accuracy and fluency free up cognitive resources that readers can devote to comprehending the meaning of the text, enabling them to truly enjoy reading - something we all want for readers!
To illustrate, we can take a word like “unbelievable” and write it in Noah Text® format as unbelievable. This system effectively breaks complex words into smaller and more familiar patterns (e.g., un + be + liev + a + ble) while keeping words intact.
Within a short period of time, students who struggle are able to cognitively access words that were otherwise inaccessible. The resulting improvements in reading accuracy and fluency free up cognitive resources to devote to comprehending the meaning of text. Both resistant and struggling readers begin to enjoy reading while simultaneously building reading skill.
Noah Text® highlights critical word patterns within texts, enabling struggling readers, individuals with dyslexia, developing readers, and ESL students to read with increased fluency and stamina – providing them much needed confidence while enhancing their reading skill.
Noah Text® is currently being used successfully in schools and reading clinics with both children and adults. Teachers are finding increased engagement and confidence in reading utilizing Noah Text®, and for some students, enabling them to read their very first chapter books.
Noah Text® is also collaborating with New Century Education Foundation and researchers at Michigan State University – developing specialized Noah Text® lessons to be added to New Century’s Intelligent Tutoring System.
Noah Text® was designed to address the fact that the English writing system is one of the most irregular, complex writing systems in the world, requiring two to three times more reading instruction time and practice than most other languages, leading to much higher rates of dyslexia and struggle. Noah Text® is a patent pending method that simulates predictable writing systems by guiding the reader toward the most critical patterns in English. Noah Text® has received ongoing recognition from literacy specialists and education professionals since its release in 2016, and was selected as an Innovation Showcase Panelist by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), Education Business Forum, in 2017.
