About This Course

  • Multisensory
  • Structured
  • Intensive

This course helps students improve reading skills and increase confidence through proven coursework centered on phonological awareness and processing skills. By focusing on improving a student’s ability to recognize that words consist of a sequence of individual sounds and the mouth actions that make them, they are taught to become self-correcting in reading, spelling and speech.

How Does It Work?

Research into how language skills develop shows us that there is a direct link between the strength of spoken language skills and reading fluency. These spoken language skills that allow us to effectively process language must be strong for reading skills to develop, but are unfortunately often overlooked by reading instruction because most curriculum developers assume they are already present.

The NOW! Reading & Spelling program takes a different approach to improving reading and spelling, focusing on the development of that phonological awareness. This provides students with the solid foundation they need in order to move from strong spoken language skills to improvements in reading fluency.

After completion of the program, students experience long-lasting reading improvements, often gaining several grade levels in reading ability and will exit the program with a newfound ability to analyze and reason through language tasks. Even students who have had speech therapy in the past and have reached a plateau in skill development have made gains through completion of the program.

NOW! Reading & Spelling students can continue their learning through our other programs:

    My son is now eager to read!

    My son told me "I used to hate reading" and when I asked why, he told me "because it used to be hard." I almost cried. Now he has even began trying to read signs aloud as we drive! These small things, more than anything, solidified that something had changed! I attribute these changes in my son to the NOW! Program, as it was the only piece of his educational instruction that had changed. The NOW! Program helped our son become a better and more confident reader.

    No longer stressed out by standardized tests

    For the first time our daughter doesn’t feel totally stressed out about taking the standardized tests! She's now able to scan the questions and paragraphs and understand what each testing section was about. She understood the main idea before she started! This may seem insignificant to most, but let me tell you, from a mom's perspective of a child that has struggled for years with not understanding what she is reading... it is INCREDIBLE!!! I'm crying now as I type this to you. Instead of viewing schoolwork and testing with fear and that scary thing looming in the future, it has now become something that our daughter knows she can accomplish! What's even more surprising is that as she approaches high school in the fall, we have even started talking about possible degrees and colleges she would like to look into! Thank you all so much for the investment you have made in a program that gives our child the ability to not only learn, but a growth in confidence of her abilities

    When I first heard Dr. Conway speak at an early childhood conference, where I was also speaking, his words were music to my ears. Have spent 15 years in youth prevention work. When he said the #3 killer of teenagers is suicide and 89% of teen suicide notes have spelling errors consistent with dyslexia, I knew I needed his help with my kids. That’s not the thing a normal mom of a 5-year-old thinks. But I knew something wasn’t right. I didn’t know what the problem was and I didn’t know how to fix it until the first conversation with Dr. Conway of NOW! Programs. Our son is now reading on grade level for the first time. He’s also feeling “as good as the other kids” and being teased less, if at all. This program didn't just give my kid the ability to read, it quite possibly saved his life.

    Dyslexia Caused Him to Hate School. NOW! Online Tutoring Changed That

    Around third grade, I started to notice Robert had difficulties with reading. Almost immediately after tutoring, he became more confident because he then understood [reading] was something he could do.
