Your Struggling Writer Can Overcome Dysgraphia, Too!
Dysgraphia is a form of writing dyslexia, is one of the most common problems that we see at our Harp Learning Institute centers. Students are having an extremely difficult time thinking and writing at the same time. They can't seem to get the messages from their brains to their hands in an organized manner.
These kids can verbally tell you a story that will blow your mind. But ask them to write it, and presto, it's gone. So, what happened from this original, wonderful story to the time that it needs to be put in written form?
The micro-pathways weren't complete! Like a roof with holes, the missing micro-pathways cannot form the macro-unit of writing.
Micro-Pathways are the only way to build Macro-Units.
For instance, the process of writing entails over 23 micro-pathways. You can't reach the goal of a complete macro-unit without the smaller, more intense, micro-pathways. Don't settle for micro-pieces and mismatched skills that aren't coordinated to work together in a comprehensive manner. Piecemeal doesn't work!
To start with, these students have brains that work faster than their hands. Some people think the answer is to have them type, but most kids can't type as fast as they think, either. Unless they are extremely good typists, these students are still left in the dark as far as writing goes.
Lisa believes that students can learn to write and write well. Too many people try to fix writing issues by using an all-inclusive system instead of breaking down the writing process into little pieces and then slowly adding skills as you go.
Since almost every subject requires the writing of some sort, including math, it is crucial that students overcome dysgraphia!
Lisa gives you the detailed micro-pathways to take a struggling writer and teach him how to write successfully, which is the macro-unit.
Dyscalculia is Actually Math Dyslexia!
You don't have to accept poor math grades!
Some students reverse letters and words, which causes a difficult time with reading and spelling. Other kids reverse numbers, which affects math.
Some students do both, which causes a lot of problems as far as learning goes.
If you have a child who is reversing numbers, it is overwhelming when you try to explain math to him. But before you get frustrated, take a peek inside of the child's brain.
Can you imagine trying to add or subtract when the numbers and columns are moving? Can you imagine trying to multiply and divide when you start out seeing a number 9 and the next time you look at it, it's a 6?
This is what these students are up against, and the real travesty occurs with the amount of help these kids are getting. Telling them to try harder and do the problem over is not going to fix how they perceive numbers. Having them do forty problems for extra practice will not help them, especially when the numbers keep changing in their brains. Adding work only adds to their problem.
Students can be taught to do the math, even if they have dyscalculia. Dyscalculia can be so confusing because often math anxiety enters the picture, which only muddies the water. But, we get excellent results with dyscalculia by dealing with the underlying problem - actual dyslexia that presents itself to students as numbers instead of letters.
There is no reason for a student to suffer from math. Math skills can be learned and achieved, which in turn increases grades when the proper intervention programs are in place. Let Lisa show you how to help your child overcome dyscalculia! Out of all of the "three d's" - dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia, she's found that dyscalculia is the most difficult to overcome. But it happens every day at Lisa's learning centers! Students who couldn't perform mental math, do simple computations, or memorize math facts learned to do all of these skills by going to the root of the problem, not sugar coating it or putting a band-aid on it!
Don't trust your child or student's education to someone without a credential or who offers a one-size-fits-all approach to reaching learning success!

One in five has dyslexia. If a student has dyslexia, then images and sounds are not perceived correctly. These students are often misdiagnosed with ADD/ADHD or other learning problems and are often placed on harsh medications or other treatments that don't work. It doesn't have to be that way.
"Waiting for a student to outgrow dyslexia is like waiting for a child to outgrow cancer." ~Lisa Harp, dyslexia specialist
