Learning Disabilities Assessment Tools!
Do you need help with a student who has learning disabilities associated with dyslexia,dyscalculia, or dysgraphia? Does your child have a different learning disability or disorder that interferes with academic success or life? Have you struggled to find help only to be met with one dead end after another? Don't despair. There is help available!
With new brain research and cutting edge methodologies available, you can now help your child or student overcome learning disabilities, especially those associated with dyslexia and other learning disorders. Just because your child has dyslexia or another learning disability, it doesn't mean that your child can't fill in the learning gaps that are preventing school, academic, and life success.
There is a hierarchy to learning. For instance, you must first have gross motor skills in place before you can expect your child to memorize math facts or read fluently.
In the past, students with learning disabilities were viewed as a lost cause. They were given IEP's or 504 Plans and a presented with watered down curriculum. The expectation was that they would never succeed. But they could be made to be comfortable.
Comfortable is good! Learning should be fun and easy. But, unfortunately, too many students today suffer from dyslexia, auditory processing problems, reading and spelling disorders, visual processing problems, dyscalculia, or dysgraphia. And these problems can be overcome! Unfortuanately, the schools are not able to do much more than deal with academics.
Unlock Your Child's True Potential!
You can't fix poor academics with another dose of academics!
The reason that schools aren't able to help struggling students is because they are equipped to deal with academics only. They aren't able to go into a student's learning system and build a foundation for success. The larger component of academics must be broken down into smaller non-academic components and then built up step by step. Students need corrective measures to make academic progress. Rehabilitation is the answer. Not repetition of academic skills.
The Formula for LearningSuccess
Students who are falling behind in school don't learn with traditional methods. If they did, they would be succeeding in school. These bright, articulate students need a set of tools to help them succeed. They need to have what is weak strengthened. For example, if a student is having a difficult time memorizing math facts, more than likely this student is weak in visual memory. Visual memory is the ability to hold an image in the brain and has nothing to do with intelligence.
Once visual memory skills are increased, the student is able to memorize math facts. However, if you were to use the traditional method of flash cards for this student, all you would do is frustrate the student and youself. With little lasting outcome.
Visual memory is simply a skill that can be exercised and increased. And there are a multitude of other skills students must have to succeed academically. Traditional programs deal with the academics only. They fail to break down the bigger skill of academics into smaller, bite-sized portions that can be built up for learning success.
You must go to the cause of the problem to fix it!
If you were to build a house, you would want a strong foundation. Yet, today, with the push for early academics, so many students have a weak learning foundation. They are pushed into learning skills before they are developmentally ready, and this can cause learning differences as well as gaps in their learning foundations.
But, the brain has plasticity at any age. It is possible to go back and build a strong learning foundation. Step by step a student's brain can be rewired for optimal learning.
And it's easy and fun to do. Students enjoy the sessions because it isn't more of the same that they had all day at school.
The brain can be retrained for learning success.
Gross motor skills are built as a foundation for higher level learning.
Memory skills can be strengthened with practice.
Visual processing skills are tuned up for academic excellence.
Auditory processing skills are enhanced for optimal classroom comprehension.
Academics are added in a multi-sensory fashion.
