3D Learner is a hands-on Boca Raton Dyslexia Program. We have helped students from 38 states and 12 foreign countries.
3D Learner takes a very different view of the dyslexic student. Rather than focus on phonics, phonemic awareness and reading fluency, 3D Learner uses a 3D Learning approach – that focuses on the fact that most students with Dyslexia are visual-spatial learner who:
– Are often smart and even gifted – here is a great article called Upside Down Brilliance by Dr. Linda Silverman — a friend and colleague who coined the term visual-spatial learner
– Often have difficulty understanding frequently used words and recognizing words the visual-spatial learner has seen and not mastered
– Frequently have problems with attention and/or visual tracking
The challenge with most dyslexia programs is that they do not focus on these factors, and it takes years to get a dyslexic student to read well, but they still may struggle with comprehension, visual processing and attention.
Alan was a classic
dyslexic student. His mom had been told to do one of the traditional programs. The estimate was that it would take a year to make a certain amount of progress.
Then she was referred to 3D Learner and he did well. Mom has the resources to do the dyslexia program, too.
Instead of taking a year, Alan completed the dyslexia program in 3 months — primarily because he had improved his vocabulary, word recognition, attention and visual tracking skills.
