Step 1: Comprehensive Learning Evaluation
Without the right kind of assessment, you cannot determine the true root cause of your struggle. We take pride in offering the most comprehensive assessment available in order to be intentional about our strategies for improvement. We provide you, as the parent, teacher, or administrator, data about the true cause of your student's educational gaps. Then, we are able to customize a plan of action based on informed, calculated data. Our full treatment plan has 3 phases that have a defined regimen and measurable outcomes. This process was developed by The Curious Edge Foundation Inc.
"Where every child can learn"
Phase 1: Cognitive Intervention
Dyslexia is a language processing disorder. It is estimated that 1 in 5 students struggle with dyslexia. These students have a solid IQ (average to above average) and are the brightest in each classroom, yet struggle with reading and writing. Most think that dyslexia is simply transposing letters, but this is just one indicator. If your student is struggling with reading comprehension, adding or skipping words, demonstrating letter/number reversals and dislikes reading, chances are your bright student is struggling with dyslexia. The key to our success is to first address the underlying cognitive deficits to bolster the neurological system requirements for reading, writing and listening into speech and speaking. The purpose of our cognitive intervention is to establish stronger neurological pathway connections, produce significant changes quickly, and to ensure measurable cognitive improvements. Through fast-paced, fun activities, cognitive skills are developed in auditory and visual processing, working memory, processing speed, word attack, and logic and reasoning. This short intensive intervention changes lives!
