Video archive: Parents and children share their stories on overcoming learning barriers
Overcoming dyslexia, dyscalculia and low IQ:
Meet Maddie, a 10-year-old who had been diagnosed with severe dyslexia, moderate dyscalculia, ADHD and low IQ (low 80s). People who had evaluated her said that they had never seen dyslexia as severe as this before. Her parents had been told by more than one professional that Maddie would probably never read, and that they should try to find things that Maddie could be successful with outside of academics, because she would never be successful in academics.
Her mom, Kimberly, refused to accept this and worked tirelessly to try to help Maddie — with little success. “At this point, I have tried so many different things with little to no success that it is hard NOT to believe the professionals telling me that she is just never going to be able to read,” Kimberly told Edublox before she and Maddie embarked on a nine-month journey with Edublox.

Is it b or d? Overcoming letter reversals:
Edublox programs are effective in overcoming reversals, for example when a child reads “dog” as “bog” or looks at the written word “was” and reads it as “saw”, etc.
Overcoming learning disabilities and low self-esteem:
Children who have learning disabilities are at risk for having lower self-esteem and self worth than that of their peers. From an early age, children compare themselves with others in areas such as academics, the ability to make and keep friends, and athletic prowess. Children with learning disabilities may judge themselves as “stupid”, “slow” or “dumb”, based on academic comparisons with other children. By overcoming a learning disability the child’s self-esteem is usually restored.
Beating severe dyslexia and ADD:
Edublox didn’t start yesterday. More than two decades ago we were already having remarkable results with severe dyslexia and ADD.

Conquering concentration difficulties:
Concentration is the ability to pay attention to one single thought or subject to the exclusion of everything else. Improving the ability to concentrate allows a person to avoid the problems, embarrassment, and difficulties that occur when the mind wanders. Better concentration makes studying easier and speeds up comprehension. It helps one to focus on one’s goals and achieve them more easily.
