From Struggle to Flight

Dragon’s Teeth in Maui is one of my favorite places in the world.  Here in the coves created by lava flow, you can see sea turtles battling the currents and undertow as the waves pound in and out.  They are incredibly resilient and just keep going no matter how much they are tossed around.

I am reminded of our students.  They battle daily to stay afloat in school in spite of the constant struggle created by their learning and attention challenges.

This morning, I saw something amazing:  A young sea turtle was swimming by in calm waters.  There was so little resistance that it almost looked like it was flying!

This is what I want for our students – and what we know is possible in most cases.  By identifying and developing weak underlying processing/learning skills, we can eliminate the cause of most learning and attention challenges.  With strong underlying skills, the reading, writing, spelling, or math skills that have been affected can be remediated and can stick!  

Children and adults do not have to spend their lives waging an uphill battle with their learning or attention challenges.  They can learn to fly!

How Can Learning Skills Change?  What Do You Actually Do?

People ask, HOW can you do that?” Brain plasticity research proves that through targeted and intensive training, the brain can literally develop new neuropathways.  The brain can change and can learn to process information more effectively.

Over the last 30 years, we have trained with those doing the cutting-edge, clinical research in the field all over the world.  We have brought the knowledge, techniques, and programming of these experts into our center in order to create specific and targeted programming for each individual student.

Experience is Everything

On Saturday October 7, 2017 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., we are opening our doors to the public to come in and try out our various therapies and techniques.  Experience for yourself:

  • What it FEELS like to have a learning or attention challenge
  • What our students actually DO when they are at the learning center.
