Students and Individuals Enjoy Reading While Building Reading Skills
Noah Text® allows readers to see sound parts within words, providing a way for struggling readers to decode and enunciate words that are too difficult to access. In turn, the improvement in reading accuracy and fluency frees up cognitive resources readers can devote to comprehending the meaning of the text, enabling them to truly enjoy reading while building reading skills.
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. In turn, both resistant and struggling readers begin to enjoy reading while simultaneously building reading skills! See The Science and "how it works" video.
