The Intelligent Tutoring System is a highly adaptive, individualized online instructional program that closes learning gaps among special needs students and accelerates learning.
Students with learning disabilities using the Intelligent Tutoring System have averaged twice the graduation rates compared to those who did not use the software, in an independent study of students with learning disabilities. (See NCCD Study)

How To Get Started
After you complete the form, you will receive an immediate response on screen and an email, both with 5 videos for you and your student to review..
The 5 videos total about 27 minutes on how to use the Intelligent Tutoring System. You will also receive the link to the site where your student can log in.
You will want to copy and paste that site into your browser, and save the location.
In a subsequent email, you will receive the credentials to use in logging into the site. Should you have any questions, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Noah Text® enhances reading fluency, stamina, and independence by highlighting critical word patterns within text.
“Noah Text® is a supplementary curriculum that builds upon early vocabulary and decodable text, and helps older students (functioning at grade level 3 and up) to build the larger vocabulary, the stamina, the fluency (literal comprehension, main idea and inference) to read and understand their first chapter books, and most importantly, to develop an interest in reading. Many students will bridge themselves to plain text and keep abreast of their non-dyslexic peers.”
Noah Text® was designed based on the fact that the English writing system is one of the most irregular and complex writing systems in the world, requiring two to three times more reading instruction time and practice compared to most other languages.
Studies also show this complexity leads to much higher rates of dyslexia. Noah Text® simulates predictable writing systems by guiding the reader toward the most critical patterns in English, bringing predictability to a system that is otherwise very complex. Noah Text® is a patent pending method that alleviates the burdens an irregular writing system puts on working memory, while increasing fluency and speed, creating a more fluid and relaxed, independent reading experience.
Noah Text® Illustrated
Noah Text® helps create access to word pronunciation through marking syllables and long vowels within the text. These markings help students to see sound parts within complex words, providing a way to decode and enunciate words that were previously difficult to access.
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 while keeping the words intact. (example below)
Within a short period of time, students with dyslexia are able to cognitively access words that were heretofore inaccessible. The resulting improvements in reading accuracy and fluency free up cognitive resources to devote to comprehending the meaning of text — the goal of reading. Students begin to enjoy reading. In the process of completing the lessons, they will complete three chapter books in the series, “The Mystical Years of Franklin Noah Peterson”. Many students will bridge themselves to reading in plain text.
Ideal for Older Students
Noah Text® excels in being effective for older students in two critical required areas for learning. Generally older students already know letters and their related sounds and their needs tend to be centered on understanding of what are called orthographic patterns in words such as in “tion” in nation, creation, obligation, and relation. Noah Text® helps students to see and apply these orthographic patterns to decoding.
Older students also need more understanding of how words change by adding or removing one or more letters, such as a prefix – aware and (un)aware. This is called “morphology” in language, and these new lessons enable older students to develop the ability to recognize both orthographic patterns and morphology to decode larger, more complex vocabulary words. But, the biggest impact of Noah Text® is that it helps students begin to read books more easily, and to learn to enjoy reading.
“Noah Text® is innovative and a real “game-changer” for those who struggle to read the printed word. Just like large printed books, Noah Text® should be available for all printed materials to alleviate the pain of reading for those with dyslexia.” – Reading Consultant
New Century is piloting this new intervention, designed to be used at home, with students of all ages with dyslexia functioning at grade levels 3 our higher. We plan to release this later in 2021, but we are selecting a small sample of users to experience it in advance for free.
