Ask About Our May Assessment Special to reduce anxiety and stress
Over the last two years, we have assessed a number of students and seen seven trends:
- Executive function deficits are the most common problem – these include problems with attention, working memory, processing speed and related skills
- Reading comprehension levels are further below grade level than at any point in our 26 years in assessing students
- Many students lack the language skills needed to succeed
- Visual processing challenges are more common and the issues are often more severe
- Dyslexia is more common and students are often lacking the basic phonics, phonemic awareness and related skills they need to succeed
- More programs than ever are attacking dyslexia, but do not necessarily capitalize on these student’s strengths or address the executive function and visual processing issues.
- Parents want to help but are overwhelmed.
Over the last 26 years, 3D Learner has helped thousands of students succeed with an approach that helps parents see their child’s potential for growth when they:
Reject the status quo and look for solutions that:
- Identify and capitalize on their child’s strengths
- Identify and address their child’s weaknesses
- Boost their child’s self-esteem and lower their anxiety
- Is tailored to help their child to make significant gains within months
- Helps parents to be even more effective coaches and advocates for their child
We suggest you contact us to start a conversation that allows you to discuss your child’s challenges and gifts and learn how you can make the difference.
Assess for Success. School based assessments are specifically designed to identify or rule out certain conditions (e.g dyslexia, learning disabilities, ADHD, working memory, processing speed etc). Our goals are to identify:
- How a child learns best and where they are strong
- Where they struggle, with a focus on executive function skills, visual processing, language and dyslexia
- Their present level of performance, especially for reading comprehension
- A tailored solution that can help a student make dramatic gains in months
We have been there with our own kids. With my daughter, dyslexia was the diagnosis and we tried one dyslexic treatment after another. It improved our daughter’s reading fluency, that is how efficiently and effectively she could read out loud. Unfortunately, she continued to struggle with:
- Reading comprehension
- Executive function skills — attention, working memory and processing speedAnxiety and frustration – who wouldn’t be frustrated if you were a lot smarter than present results indicated
In 8th grade, we were told our daughter was not college material, because her reading comprehension was 3 years below grade level. I became a mom on a mission. I am Mira Halpert. I have my Master’s in Education and significant educational experience, but I needed a different set of tools.
With the 3D Learner Program ® I developed, my daughter improved her reading comprehension 4.2 grade levels in 7 months. She will soon complete her 19th year of teaching. Next year, she will earn her PHD.
Over the last 26 years, 3D Learner has helped thousands of smart kids succeed.
- A kindergarten student who was really struggling who aced the first grade final the first week of first grade
- A 1st grader who was really struggling who is now going to Emory Univeristy
- A 2nd grader who improved her reading comprehension 2 grade levels in 4 months and 3 grade levels in 7 months, after being stuck for two years
- A 3rd grader who made more progress than any student his teacher had had in 27 years of teaching
- A 4th grader whose parents were told to send him to a school for students with dyslexia who wound up at Harvard
- A 5th grader whose reading comprehension was at the 1st grade level, she read slowly and homework time took forever. She improved her reading comprehension 4.2 grade levels, doubled her reading speed and cut her homework time by 50 percent. She also did it independently
- Middle and high school students who improved their comprehension 3 and even 4 grade levels in 4 months and who dramatically improved their sports skills
Questions for you to consider
Is your child a bright right brain kinesthetic learner?
- Does your child remember places, even from years ago?
- Does your child learn best when he or she sees and experiences information?
- Is your child a lot smarter than present results would indicate?
If the answers are yes, there is a good chance your child is a right brain kinesthetic learner. Dr. Linda Silverman has developed a 15 question screening tool to identify the right brain kinesthetic learner. Click here to see if your child might be a right brain kinesthetic learner.
Studies have shown that over 60 percent of the students today learn best when they see and experience information. Many of the other students are more logical, sequential and auditory, which is the way schools often teach. As a result, these right brain kinesthetic learners make up a significant percentage of the smart struggling students.
These are the students we do very well with,
The infographic below shows the 5 key attributes of these students. That is they are:
- Often a right brain kinesthetic learner
- Virtually all of them either have executive function challenges that might include:
- Attention to that which is boring or frustrating
- Working memory – they often have an excellent memory for that which they see and experience and a much weaker memory for that which they hear or read
- Processing speed — like the old 56k modems, they download visuals very slowly
- Visual processing issues are found in over 70 percent of our students. That is they see and experience information.
- Close to 40 percent of our students are struggling with dyslexia and/or learning disabilities
- Anxiety and/or frustration are often present
Since our goal is to tailor a program to improve reading fluency, reading comprehension, executive function, math skills and lower anxiety, we need to assess the whole child.
