Dr. Ken Gibson’s Testimonial:

I struggled to read all through my school years. Back then, so little was known about the causes behind learning and reading struggles that I was essentially on my own.

Today, I would be labeled dyslexic. Many of my other cognitive skills were strong. I could (and often did) study 5 minutes before spelling tests and score 100%, but then would misspell those same words later on my written assignments.
I had an undiagnosed cognitive skill weakness that made it difficult for me to distinguish sounds and sound out words. These weaknesses made school far more difficult than it needed to be, but I compensated for my weaknesses, worked excessively hard, and persevered through to a professional graduate program.
When I began my professional career I learned that I wasn’t unique in my reading struggles. Thousands of others struggled to learn and read. That motivated me to co-create the cognitive skills programs that form the foundation of our brain training programs today.
Each positive result fuelled our team’s motivation to help more children achieve or surpass the academic level of their peers. This passion burns in me as strong today as ever! The excitement I experience seeing our brain training programs impact lives every day continues to fuel that passion.
With the continuing advancements in research and new training available from our centers all across the country and the world, enduring the struggles that I endured as a child, accepting labels like dyslexic or ADHD, settling for low learning potential, or compensating for learning weaknesses is simply no longer necessary. Parents now have options that work.
I invite you to take a look at what Steps to Miles offers and contact us. I am excited, and certain that we can help.
To your learning success,
Ken Gibson
