NOW! Mental Imagery®

Improves Language, Comprehension, Memory and Reasoning

Mental imagery – the ability to form thought pictures or to visualize what you hear or read – plays a big part in understanding and retaining information. For those who struggle with mental imagery, much of their brain power goes to sounding out words, leaving little capacity to remember and understand. NOW! Mental Imagery® is a research-based, scientifically proven program that uses tested methodologies to develop and strengthen this critical ability.

NOW! Mental Imagery®

Improves These Learning Difficulties

  • Reading comprehension – Inability to understand what was just read.
  • Organization – Difficulty staying on topic and relaying information in a structured, understandable way.
  • Sequencing – Trouble putting events or information in order; may omit material.
  • Poor Coherence –  Difficulty putting the parts together to create a main idea.
  • Frequent re-reading – Must read a passage several times to understand it and still may not retain it.
  • Memory – Trouble remembering information for tests and quizzes.
  • Creating inferences – Difficulty drawing conclusions or accurately summarizing written or spoken material.

Visualizing what you hear or read comes naturally to many people, but if you or your child have dyslexia or other learning differences, it may be difficult. NOW! Mental Imagery® strengthens the skills that are required to visualize written or spoken language. Improving these basic skills makes a dramatic difference in the ability to understand language in any form.

NOW!‘s Mental Imagery®
Course Builds Confidence

After completing the NOW! Mental Imagery® course, learners enjoy a marked improvement in reading and listening comprehension skills, information retention, vocabulary and spoken language skills. By developing the ability to visualize language (we call this skill creating mental movies), students can use and apply written or spoken information on the first try, building confidence and self-esteem.

Why NOW!
Mental Imagery®

Making movies

Making mental movies from text or speech is a natural process for people who comprehend without difficulty. People with dyslexia or other learning differences often do not create these mental images.

We Start with the Basics

Visual imagery development begins at a basic, concrete level. We ask students to describe simple pictures in a systematic and organized way, teaching them how language can give clear, concise and accurate information.

Building on the Basics

As students become more fluent and organized, we give them more complex pictures to describe. We ask them to recreate images from memory, describing them while holding onto the mental information in their heads.

Describing Words

Once fluent at the picture level, students work to describe words. Making movies from single words helps build vocabulary skills and improves retention. We progress to longer chunks of information. One word becomes a sentence, then multiple sentences.

Why Is Mental Imagery Important?

Research shows that memory improves when visual and verbal systems work well together. Starting with simple tasks and building to more complex exercises gives the student a feeling of success. Confidence improves, and learners can better use and apply what they read as their visualization skills improve.
