Dyslexia is term used to refer to a pattern of learning difficulties characterized by problems with accurate or fluent word recognition, poor decoding, and poor spelling abilities. It is not caused by poor sight or low intelligence or lack of interest. At the very root of reading success are the cognitive skills of phonemic awareness and auditory processing. Often people and children with dyslexia may be bright and perform very well in other areas.
Main challenges faced by people with Reading Difficulties and Dyslexia:
- Struggle with reading, writing or spelling
- May perform well orally and suffer as they do not perform well academically
- Difficulty connecting letters to sounds
- Difficulty reading fluently, decoding text, recognizing “sight” words and thereby understanding text.
BrainRx training targets and strengthens cognitive skills of auditory processing, visual processing, attention and overall cognitive development. We conduct a cognitive skills assessment which helps to pinpoint the exact cause of reading and learning problems and strengthen the weaknesses.
One-on-one brain training improves the ability to decipher and decode words. As a result, we get often dramatic improvements for clients of all ages who come to us for reading intervention. In fact, our students gain an average of 3.1 years in reading skills in as little as 6 months. This is much faster than potential gains through academic tutoring programs.
