NOW! Foundations for Speech, Language, Reading and Spelling®

Empowers Learning Skills and Removes Learning Challenges

Our dyslexia reading program takes a strengths based approach by strengthening the skills at the root* cause of reading problems: Phonological Processing and Phonological Awareness are the most common causes of reading, language and learning problems. People with weaknesses in these areas experience these difficulties:

  • Speaking – Word mispronunciation; difficulty finding words; confusion over verb tenses, plurals, and forms
  • Auditory memory – Difficulty repeating what you said to them, trouble completing multi-step instructions, poor comprehension of what they read
  • Reading – A dislike of reading; reliant on sight words and guesses; slow pace, many reading errors
  • Spelling – Poor retention of words after spelling tests, never able to pass a spelling test no matter how much practice – even seems to know how to spell the words at home, but does poorly on the spelling test at school
  • Writing – Avoidance of writing tasks; Written sentences are short and choppy; Sentences are out of order and together do not tell an understandable story, many spelling, punctuation and grammar errors in writing
  • Language expression – Difficulty explaining their ideas or retelling a story; poor reading and listening comprehension; struggle to tell a story or directions in the proper sequence
  • Foreign language – Trouble learning and retaining words in other languages, poor spelling and poor reading and poor speaking of foreign language words
  • Focus – Trouble concentrating; wears out before completing a task
  • Self-esteem – Increasing frustration and poor self-esteem

By now, you’ve tried other dyslexia reading programs and heard many promises about growth or making progress; however, the growth was not enough and the progress was too slow (the gap was getting wider as your child fell further and further behind in their reading skills) and commonly those programs did not have lasting success. No worries! NOW! Foundations can and is scientifically proven to help even students with Severe Dyslexia (reading at or below the 5th percentile). Our evidence-based dyslexia program has been proven effective in randomized controlled, peer-reviewed trials; that is the same caliber of research that helps your pediatrician or family doctor, and all medical professionals too, know what treatments work best for what diagnoses and all to get the best outcomes. NOW! Company has completed more than a decade of scientific research on the effectiveness of the NOW! Foundations for Speech, Language, Reading and Spelling® program to empower language, reading, spelling and many more skills. Also, NOW! Programs® dyslexia course has also been tested and proven to be highly effective for improving an even far more complicated reading problem than dyslexia. NOW! Programs® even empower adults with Phonological Alexia (reading problems that happen after a person has a brain injury, called a stroke). Empowering Phonological Alexia is one thousand times more complicated than empowering new strengths for students of all ages with Dyslexia. Why? Well, Phonological Alexis is due to actual brain damage, when part of the brain’s tissue/network of cells are gone and this has essentially broken the communication channels between different parts of the brain. Fortunately, if you or a child have Dyslexia, there is a fully intact, 100 Billion brain cells brain with nearly 100 Trillion connections for building skills like phonological awareness, reading, spelling, speaking and much more.

*More than 88% of those with dyslexia also struggle with phonological processing.

Unlock these Benefits with the NOW! Foundations Program

NOW! Foundations is centered around strengthening phonological awareness & processing skills.  When they take our dyslexia reading programs, students learn to decipher the sounds used to speak (and the mouth actions to make these sounds) and to understand that words are made of a sequence of sounds. After these basic skills are mastered, more advanced skills are added.

Students who take NOW! Foundations

  • Discover the fun of learning and reading
  • Greatly improve their reading, spelling, and auditory memory skills
  • Learn to analyze and reason through language tasks

When a student successfully strengthens their language skills using NOW! Foundations, they become empowered learners, with a whole world of possibilities ahead of them.  NOW! Foundations unlocks hidden potential and begins a lifelong love affair with reading and learning.

Why NOW! Foundations?

Because It Gets Results

A Different Approach

Students complete a unique multisensory course, integrating sensory information from the mouth, ears and eyes. Through these activities, students develop a specific knowledge of the mouth movements, auditory sounds and visual features of speech.

Science-Based Learning

NOW! Foundations courses are based on over 30 years of research by The Morris Center, a neurodevelopmental treatment and assessment center in Florida. Researchers discovered that when students move through a set of multisensory activities, they achieve long-lasting advances in language skills.

Multisensory Learning

Research has shown that exploring language in a tactile, multisensory way significantly improves phonological processing and awareness, which is crucial for strong written and oral language, reading and spelling. With this new ability, students develop phonological awareness and begin to self-correct in language tasks like reading and spelling.

Simply… Results

If you’ve tried other dyslexia reading programs without success, it might be hard to believe that another type of program could help. Our experience shows that students may gain several levels of reading ability within 6-12 months of beginning our online etutoring with our highly trained educators.

Why NOW! Foundations Matters

While most people rightly associate dyslexia with learning differences, powerful emotional factors go hand-in-hand with the condition. Anxiety, anger, and poor self-esteem can follow continued frustration in school or social situations.

With NOW!’s breakthrough dyslexia reading programs, students establish a solid foundation that enables them to move from strong spoken language skills to improvements in reading fluency and comprehension. The advancements are long-lasting, even if the student plateaued in other dyslexia reading programs.

Instead of facing standardized tests, school tasks or reading aloud with fear and anxiety, students have the newfound confidence to accomplish these tasks and succeed. Many of our students have reported enjoying reading and learning for the first time in their lives!
