Dyslexia is primarily an auditory disorder affecting one’s ability to perceive and respond to speech sounds in a consistent manner. Children diagnosed with dyslexia typically have deficiencies associated with the left side of the brain, the language center that is responsible for reading, interpreting letters and symbols, and understanding the spoken language. While dyslexia is considered one of the most common causes for reading difficulties, the challenges it brings extend well beyond reading alone — often making it difficult for children to keep up with schoolwork or build trust and accountability in relationships.

Children with dyslexia may struggle with:

  • Reading and language
  • Problem solving
  • Time management
  • Prioritizing tasks
  • Handedness
  • Directional discrimination
  • Balance
  • Coordination deficiencies
  • Low self-esteem

Treating Dyslexia With Our Brain Training Tools

Studies reveal that the brain of an individual with dyslexia will not work the same way as someone who does not have the condition. Intensive brain training programs like those offered at Learn 2 Focus can help your child through the natural ability of the brain to “rewire” and adapt. 

Treating Dyslexia With Our Brain Training Tools

With these powerful, research-based brain training programs, children with dyslexia have the potential to overcome their reading, language and cognitive challenges:

 

Learn 2 Focus was the first licensed practitioner of Interactive Metronome for dyslexia treatment in Hawaii, a form of brain training that works to integrate both hemispheres of the brain, allowing for better processing of information. In practical terms, this means powerful and lasting improvements in timing, memory, attention span and a variety of cognitive skills.

Fast ForWord can be effective for dyslexia by encouraging improved temporal processing through patented technology designed to stimulate memory, attention, processing and sequencing. The Fast ForWord language and reading interventions contain neuroscience-based exercises that are shown to have a rapid and significant impact on children and adults with dyslexia.

Reading interventions for dyslexia should be most effective if they combine auditory perceptual training of speech sounds with exercises that require relating speech sounds to the written letter. And, in fact, neuroscience research bears that out.

…the dyslexic children went through eight weeks of daily one-hour sessions (about 60 hours total) of the remediation program Fast ForWord Language (Scientific Learning Corporation, Oakland)…After training, the children with dyslexia showed brain activity much more like that of the typical-reading group. Furthermore, the dyslexic children’s reading scores as a group improved significantly.
