* Does your child have the ability to excel academically, yet struggles to reach his full potential?
* Is your child battling to concentrate, plan and organize, or is his memory poor?
* Does he struggle with reading? Does he, for example, confuse b and d?
* Does he read slowly and hesitantly, or with poor comprehension?
* Does he spell words as they sound, for example, “rite” for “right”?
* Does he find math to be a challenge? Does he, for example, encounter difficulties with mental arithmetic?
* Has he been diagnosed with dyslexia, dysgraphia, or ADHD?
If you answered “yes” to any of the above, your child probably lacks some of the tools required for learning.
We give the tools for learning!
When you have the right tools, any task will be accomplished with greater ease and efficiency. Imagine, for example, trying to mix cement with a spoon rather than a cement mixer. Imagine trying to mow the lawn with a pair of scissors!
Cognitive skills — concentration, perception, memory, and logical thinking — are mental skills used in the process of acquiring knowledge, and can be considered your child’s tools for learning.
Research has shown that cognitive skills are a determining factor of an individual’s learning ability, according to Oxfordlearning.com, the skills that “separate the good learners from the so-so learners.” In essence, when cognitive skills are strong, learning is fast and easy. When cognitive skills are weak, learning becomes a challenge.
Hundred and thirty studies have shown that 88% of below-grade-level readers have significant weaknesses in cognitive skills. Recent studies support the notion that many children with ADHD have cognitive deficits, specifically in working memory.
The great news is that these weaknesses can be attacked head-on. Through dynamic training and practice, cognitive skills can be improved, strengthened, and enhanced.
