How We Assess For Success at our Boca Raton Learning Center
Most local students take our 3D Learner Comprehensive Assessment before we start to work with them. This lets us tailor a custom program to meet your child’s exact way of learning.
This comprehensive assessment includes:
The Structure of Intellect Assessment
This helps us identify your child’s learning style, learning strengths and challenges, and if we are dealing with any vision or hearing issues.
The Visagraph Assessment
This shows how your child’s eyes track when reading. This is important, because it is an often overlooked issue for right-brain learners. If your child learns differently, chances are words and lines are skipped during reading. One physician who saw how his patients eyes tracked when reading said, “That explains one of the major reasons that child cannot read”.
The Interactive Metronome Assessment
This is how we find out if there is an attention or self-control challenge. One third of our clients have ADHD and 90% of our students can benefit from improved attention. A key part of this assessment is a 9-minute exercise where most students lose focus after 3 to 5 minutes, sometimes sooner. Our students often say, “This is exactly what happens to us in class.”
The Biofeedback Assessment
We also perform a biofeedback assessment to understand your child’s stress level to demanding situations, and a Reading Plus Evaluation that measures your child’s present level of reading speed, reading comprehension and vocabulary. We have seen students heart rates jump from 90 to 130 and in some cases over 150 when we just mention the word FCAT – Florida’s Comprehensive Achievement Test. The good news is we can improve everything we test for. We also recognize that we refer to a physician where appropriate.
The Reading Comprehension Assessment
The Reading Comprehension Assessment shows your child’s reading speed and comprehension level and their vocabulary. Frequently, our students have a higher vocabulary, but their comprehension and speed are compromised by their learning difference, attention and/or visual tracking issues.
At the end of the assessment, you know where your child stands, what the key issues are and where the training should be focused.
The 3D Learner Program for local students includes:
- 30 hours of student training, often done initially with 3 consecutive days of training of 4 hours each
- 6 weeks of training 2x a week for 1.5 hours
- 3 hours of parent training to include goal-setting
- A one hour session with parents and the student that focuses on where the student was at, what the progress has been, and what should be done next
- 6 follow-up calls to answer questions and to maximize results
- A special home kit that enables the parents to take care of follow-up
- Additional training based on student needs and other considerations
The Taylor Reading Plus ® Program to improve reading speed and comprehension, the Gemstone Vision Software ® to improve visual skills, HeartMath’s emWave ® Stress Release program, Cogmed Working Memory Program ® and BrainWare ® Safari cognitive skills training can be added to the program.
