Dyslexia Boca Raton is what mom typed in. She found some good information on
– Dyslexia Testing and Evaluation Boca Raton – a well respected psychologist
– The definition of Dyslexia
– A Boca Raton dyslexia treatment
– Dyslexia Tutors
All had a common theme, a problem with phonics, phonics based training and she had been there and tried both the Dyslexia Testing, a Dyslexia Treatment and the Dyslexia Tutor without success.
Then she read about right-brain dyslexia — the following 5 questions caught her eye:
– Does your child remember places visited, even from years ago?
– Does your child learn best when your child sees and experiences information?
– Does your child lose focus when the work is boring or frustrating?
– Does your child skip words and/or lines when reading?
– Are your child’s reading comprehension and standardized test scores lower than you have expected?
Three thoughts crossed her mind:
– Never in these questions did the word dyslexia show up. This was about a combination of strengths and challenges
– These questions were her child — a right-brain learner who had both attention and eye-teaming challenges
– Her child would do far better with a program that played to his strengths
When we called, the first two questions were different than what she had previously encountered:
– What is your child good at?
– What are your child’s key interests outside of school
Her son was good at science and math — like his dad. What she had not realized was these were often strong subjects for right-brain learners
Her son was good at baseball When she learned that the training would improve his baseball, she knew she had that hook.
Mom has always had to bribe her son to go to yet another psychologist, dyslexia treatment or tutor. Now we described how students often wanted to come to our program because we could improve their baseball.
This is both a conscious effort and good luck.
Tools like the Interactive Metronome (R) improve attention, self-control, reading fluency and sports skills.
Tools like Biofeedback improve a student’s ability to perform under test pressure and in tough situations in sports
Reading Plus (R), an excellent reading comprehension program, allows students to pick passages they like to read. This allows students to select passages of interest to them — including sports, space and many other subjects.
There has been a slew of information on line about the need for dyslexia programs to focus on phonics, phonemic awareness, reading fluency, vocabulary and comprehension. These programs often take 1 to 3 years.
At 3D Learner, we realize all these skills are necessary, but we also realize that most students with dyslexia are right-brain learners. We have found these students can often achieve success in months not years by:
– First engaging the student in the learning process
– Using a hands-on approach to improve sight word vocabulary and recognizing words seen and not mastered
– Identifying attention and eye-teaming issues, where appropriate
Then addressing the phonics, phonemic awareness and related issues
As a parent, the best way to proceed is to consider both a traditional dyslexia program and a right-brain dyslexia program like 3D Learner. It provides you with new insights and will allow you to capitalize on your child’s strengths and challenges.
