Dyslexia and Learning Disabilities Often Mask Learning Differences and Other Challenges
Dyslexia and Learning Disabilities are the two most common labels for smart struggling students, but they often mask five key issues:
- Most students with dyslexia and learning disabilities learn differently — we estimate 80 to 90%
- Many students with dyslexia and learning disabilities have ADHD and many of the others have an attention problem
- Anxiety and stress are very common for students with dyslexia and learning disabilities
- Eye-teaming issues are very common for students with dyslexia and learning disabilities
- For students with dyslexia and learning disabilities, school-based interventions are of limited help and parents often need to find the right answers to help their child with dyslexia and learning disabilities succeed
3D Learner Helps Students with Dyslexia and Learning Disabilities Succeed in Months Not Years
At 3D Learner, we realize that terms like Dyslexia and a Learning Disabilities can help a child can get services from a public or charter schools, but rarely helps the student to achieve their full potential. For students in private schools or who are home schooled, these terms can often mask alternative treatments that focus on your child’s strengths and challenges. What are the five key problems:
1- School based assessments are focused on what is wrong with a child. Outside assessments are often focused on identifying challenges, and sometimes miss the strengths your child may have.
2- School-based assessments and goals focus on reading fluency and what I call 4 out of 5 goals (e.g. four out of 5 times Matthew will answer inferential questions correctly) do not identify or address the key goal most parents want — how do we dramatically improve our child’s reading comprehension and love of reading and learning
3- Attention and anxiety issues are often missed, but when they are identified, the recommendations are often for ADHD medication, anxiety medication, and/or counseling. They often do not offer natural and effective solutions like the Interactive Metronome (R) and Brain Gym (R) exercises
4- Eye-teaming issues are often not identified or addressed
5- Parents do not have an easy way to identify learning differences, attention, anxiety and eye-teaming issues.
Therefore, we have developed a Success Assessment that screens for these issues. Parents have learned a great deal from the answers their child gives, from the Strategy Session and from understanding both their child’s strengths and challenges and how the parents can make the difference.
