A Student with Dyslexia is often a Visual Learner
Discovering our daughter was a visual learner was a game changer. Dyslexia had been diagnosed and after one dyslexia treatment, we tried a second dyslexia treatment. Then in 8th grade we were told our daughter was not college material — one more psychologist recommended one more dyslexia treatment
After considerable research, we discovered our daughter was a visual learner. This means she learns best when she sees and experiences information. With what has become known as the 3D Learner Program (R), our daughter improved her comprehension 4.2 grade levels in 7 months.
What we have since discovered is that most students with dyslexia are also visual learners.
We later discovered that a visual learner often has attention or eye-tracking issues; and many have both
Visual learners with attention and eye-tracking issues can often make dramatic gains in months not years, with our program that teaches to the student’s strengths and identifies and addresses the relevant issues.
With our strength-based program, we have seen visual learners make the following gains:
- A first grader with dyslexia move into the gifted program by third grade and do very well there
- A second grader go from the 18th percentile in reading to the 83rd percentile and then go on to graduate college with honors
- A third grader go from the worst reader in her class to the best. She went from a non-reader to an avid reader
- Two fourth graders go from “concern with their dyslexia” to attend MIT and Harvard
- A fifh grader improve his comprehension 4 grade levels in 8 months
- Middle and high-school students improve their comprehension 3, 4 and even 5 grade levels in 4 to 8 months
What makes it even better is that these students improved attention, visual processing, self-esteem, self-advocacy skills and so much more.
5 ways we help students succeed:
1- We teach the way the student learns best
2- We help the students to visualize, understand and remember what they read
3- We identify and address the relevant attention, eye-teaming and related challenges
4- We boost their self-esteem, self-advocacy skills and ability to operate more independently
5- We help parents to be the coach and advocate your child needs
These students succeeded because their parents discovered their child was a visual learner, they chose to partner with us and did what it took to make the difference
Some key questions to consider:
- Does your child remember places visited, even from years ago?
- Does your child learn best when he or she sees and experiences information?
- Does your child lose focus when bored or frustrated?
- Does your child skip words and/or lines when reading?
- Would you be interested in a program that often delivers signficant results in months not years?
If this describes your child, he or she may be a visual learner with related challenges. To learn more, take our Success Assessment, you will get immediate feedback and you can then call for a no cost Stress to Success Strategy Session or call us immediately at 561-361-7495
