The holiday season is a time of transformation. The landscape turns into a winter wonderland (more naturally in some parts of the country than others)! Attitudes and outlook are transformed.

My living room has been transformed into a display case for a miniature winter village.

Transformation is a hopeful idea. It means that things that are difficult can change.

At SLC, we get to see transformation everyday. I am so grateful to the dedicated staff and parents that make this possible, and to all of the clinical researchers in the field of learning that contributed to our understanding of learning and the changes that can take place for children, adults, and families dealing with learning and attention challenges.

A few weeks ago a dad was moved and delighted by a text message from his daughter that said, “I love you.” The words are moving enough, but this text was the beginning of a transformation for a dyslexic 3rd grader who in previous weeks could not consistently recognize letters.

A young man came to us for testing because he had failed his first semester of medical school. The cause was certainly not lack of effort or intelligence, but auditory processing and dyslexia. After 9 weeks of intensive one-to-one cognitive educational therapy at the learning center, he went on to successfully redo his first semester of medical school.

When struggles in school are eliminated, families are transformed. Parents are able to spread out their time more equally among their children. A grateful mom shared, “We all speak to each other differently now. “

Does your child or someone you care about struggle with dyslexia, reading, spelling, learning or attention? These challenges can be changed. While there are no simple, overnight solutions, most learning and attention challenges can be dramatically improved or completely corrected through developing the weak underlying skills and remediating the affected academic areas.
