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
- Directional discrimination
- 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.
With these powerful, research-based brain training programs, children with dyslexia have the potential to overcome their reading, language and cognitive challenges:
- Interactive Metronome
- Fast ForWord
- Wilson Reading System
- The Listening Program
- Reading Assistant
- Moyer's Learning Ears
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.
