Your Key to Lasting Learning Success!

"Dyslexic students have become "throw away students" in our society. Because they are usually so verbal and intelligent, people expect too much out of them.  This only leads to frustration on their part, and they rarely receive the true help that they need."

~Lisa Harp, founder of Harp Learning Institute

"Nick  is feeling really good about school.  When we received the diagnosis of dyslexia, we thought he would never succeed.  But after using the Harp Learning Success System for 18 months, Nick can now read and write with ease.  His reading scores jumped five levels!

The exercises were easy to understand, and he enjoyed doing them.  Now he is headed to college with the rest of his friends!  We never thought we would see this day!"

      Can Your Child Overcome Dyslexia?  

Dyslexia in children is prevalent.  One student in five has dyslexia. That means in any given classroom approximately six children have dyslexia.  Most of these children don't get help because they are of normal intelligence or higher.

Dyslexia in children is not something the student will outgrow. Some people learn to push through it and find a way to function and succeed in life. A successful, Harvard-educated doctor told his story.  He had to work three times harder than anyone else.  Why?  He had dyslexia.  Through sheer determination, he taught himself to push through it and succeed.

                                  The Puzzle of Dyslexia:

To top it off, most people don't understand how to treat dyslexia in children.  There are many dyslexia symptoms that are ignored or unable to be treated by mainstream education.    The signs of dyslexia can be learned easily with the quick, easy to use a test that Lisa Harp designed after working with children with dyslexia for over thirty years!

Sadly, most people with dyslexia don't learn to do this. Nor do they receive help. They are told to work harder, try harder, and practice more. But these methods won't work. The dyslexic student needs to form new neural pathways across the corpus callosum so that the left hemisphere can be accessed, which will still the movement in the brain that is causing dyslexia.

Reading problems can be caused by any number of very easy to correct basic skill sets.  A dyslexia diagnosis actually means that there are problems in one or more of these components, such as visual tracking, visual closure, visual discrimination, or even weak eye muscles.   New research has proven that there is an auditory component as well.  

These children with dyslexia just don't perceive the world like the rest of us do, and it often interferes with academics, even though they are indeed bright students.  

The good news?  You can use simple activities and exercises that will fill in the student's learning gaps so the world can be perceived correctly.   Right in the privacy of your home.

The certified Dyslexia Specialists at Harp Learning Institute have used these exercises with thousands of students and brought them to grade level mastery!

          How To Help Students Overcome Dyslexia!

  • We take the student back to the very beginning and fill in missing gaps in the learning foundation.
  • We actually teach the student to "still" the images in the brain that are causing problems.
  • Perceptual, spatial, visual, auditory, and memory building is built into the system.
  • Students build on skills that are basic and then we increase the demand of these skills.
  • With as little as 20 minutes per day, with out home system, your child can "learn to learn".
  • You child will be able to perceive incoming information correctly, so in turn, academics can be mastered without wading through so much "muddy" information in the brain.
  • We have a 98% success rate over fifteen years and can offer this same proven, scientific based system for you to use easily at home, because who knows your child better than you?

Students start out with easy exercises that build a foundation for learning.  Then, as the student progresses, more difficult activities are added.  In essence, it is like building a house.  That proper foundation must be put into place before higher level (executive functioning) skills can be easily performed.

Few people realize that the brain has plasticity no matter what the age and that by performing specific exercises over and over new neural pathways are formed. For children with dyslexia, this is crucial. By performing these activities over and over again, new pathways are formed and the swimming, moving, or crooked images in the dyslexic child's brain will be stilled.

Have you ever taken the time to ask dyslexic students how they view the world? For starters, their world is in motion. They view the world as if it is a motion picture. Or, it may be upside down, slanted, or wavy.  These kids might actually tell you that the words on their papers are wiggling.  For most, it is a scary world because it isn't holding still. These are the students who retreat by failing to step out into the world because it is moving and they can't find a safe way to navigate. Others might be bolder, trying to keep up with the motion of their world. These are the active kids who are often wrongly misdiagnosed as having ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). Often they are medicated, which does nothing to steady their spinning world, but it can keep them calm and quiet so that they aren't a nuisance to anyone.

Students with dyslexia have gifts and talents that go unnoticed and unappreciated. Since their world is viewed differently than most people's, they have so much to contribute. But first, we need to help them still the motion in their brains so that they can succeed in school and become contributing members of society.

Have you ever wondered if you child or student has dyslexia?  One in five does, so that means that in any given classroom, approximately six to seven students have dyslexia.  Sadly, it is often not diagnosed since these dyslexic students are truly intelligent.

Following is a list of symptoms of dyslexia.  Take a look at the list and check to see if your student might just be one of these students.

Does the child:

  • have a high oral vocabulary but cannot translate it into reading or writing?
  • seem to be in a “fog” a lot of the time – spacing out or daydreaming?
  • write and read letters or words backward after the first grade?
  • have an unorganized desk,backpack,or room?
  • have excellent long term memory but can’t remember simple instructions or details?
  • exhibit an extreme difference between ability and achievement?
  • have a family history of learning problems or dyslexia?
  • learn to read by memorizing words?
  • spell phonetically or inconsistently?
  • have a difficult time with 2-3 step directions?
  • have a difficult time reading small sight words such as “the” and “an”?
  • display poor “sounding out” skills when reading?
  • skip lines when reading?
  • have a difficult time with left and right?
  • have a difficult time with rhyming?
  • hate school?
  • have trouble telling time with a clock with hands?
  • have inaccurate and labored oral reading?
  • have an extremely fast or slow processing of information speed?
  • either act out or withdraw in response to learning pressure?
  • have messy handwriting?
  • grip his/her pencil tightly or incorrectly?
  • think of elaborate excuses to avoid school work?
  • learn best by doing something instead of listening or watching?
  • exhibit gifts in other areas such as art, singing, social skills?
