Seeing your child from a different perspective

 

Very often schools and psychologists focus on what is wrong with a child. We focus on the positive using the term visual learner.

We teach the way a visual learner learns best.

What allows our students to make gains in months vs. years:

  • We identify and address challenges, for example: attention, eye-teaming, working memory, processing speed and anxiety challenges.
  • We capitalize on the student’s strengths.
  • Our process is customized for the individual student.
  • Our curriculum is integrated and engaging.
  • Parents are an integral part of the solution.

We teach the way visual learners learn best

When we focus on your visual learner’s strengths, and identify and address their challenges, success can be seen in:

  • Elevated reading comprehension levels
  • Higher test scores
  • Reading enjoyment
  • Getting homework done right in less time and with less stress
  • Higher self-esteem and less anxiety
  • Better performance in extracurricular events
  • A more successful and happy child

3D Learner Programs

When students are taught based on their strengths, they are more engaged and master skills much faster. The key is creating an environment that fosters this engagement.

Areas where improvements are needed can be targeted and improved using our proprietary teaching materials.

What is the 3D Learner initiative "Success by Third Grade or Sooner?

“Success by Third Grade or Sooner” has been a key priority for 3D Learner for several years. We believe that K-3rd grade is the single best time to focus on improving your child’s reading comprehension, vocabulary and love for learning.

  • Almost 90% of the students with a word identification problem in 1st grade will be poor readers in 4th grade — we know who these kids are early in their school career. Many smart and gifted students have reading comprehension levels below grade level.  Even worse, parents…are not aware of studies showing that over 70% of the students with a reading disability (dyslexia) who are reading  below grade level at the end of third grade will still have a reading disability (dyslexia) in 12th grade

Too often parents invest in:

  • Tutoring and learning centers, without the desired results
  • Reading programs, often decoding programs, do not focus on improving reading comprehension. While they can help develop reading comprehension, that is not the primary goal.
  • Counseling that may reduce anxiety and build self-esteem, but it does not address reading comprehension or other key goals
What percentage of kids are visual learners and what percent of the visual learners have dyslexia?

Dr. Linda Silverman and her team from the Gifted Development Center, did a study that showed that 62% of the kids were visual learners.

  • We estimate that 80% of smart struggling students are visual learners

  • While we estimate that 80% of the students with dyslexia are a visual learner, most visual learners do not have dyslexia.

Why do many visual learners have visual processing issues?

Research shows that the visual learner tends to have strong peripheral vision.  This means they are acutely aware of their surroundings.  Unfortunately, they have problems with near point vision and their eyes often have difficulty converging on the written word.  72% of our students skip words and lines when reading. This is why we both assess for and address this issue. 

How does your assessment differ from school based and other assessments?

School-based assessments are often done to identify or rule out a disability. They often do not look at how your child learns best or whether or not there is a visual processing issue. They treat this as a medical issue. Too often they focus on reading fluency and how well your child reads, and not comprehension.

Outside assessments look at the broader issues, but too often do not identify the visual learner or visual processing issues

At 3D Learner, we use the Structure of Intellect Assessment ® that identifies how a student learns best, what are the student’s strengths and challenges and whether there is an underlying visual or auditory processing issue.

When a principal asked a Special Education Professional why the school stopped using the SOI Assessment, the Professional said, “We must label the child and this assessment does not do that.”

3D Learner has the luxury to use the assessment to tailor a program to meet the student’s needs.
