Success, Nothing Less!!!!

How Does a Processing Problem Affect a Child?

Young children want to be successful in school. They want to be liked and accepted. Naturally, they cannot understand why learning is so difficult for them when it isn’t for their classmates. They feel that something is wrong with them, and it’s not getting any better. To a struggling child, this is devastating. Most parents are at a loss as to what to do. They have examined all ordinary physical and social reasons for their behavior.

What the struggling student often really needs is a program that will target the  skills that are not sufficient for proper learning, and will train and strengthen them so that they are properly developed. Children with deficiencies in processing information, tend to avoid their schoolwork because it is difficult, discouraging, and frustrating.

Could Your Child Be At Risk?

 

 

 

 

 

Does your child display any of the following behaviors?

• Is unable to sit still or stay on task for any length of time

• Avoids school work if it is complicated or hard

• Often requires instructions to be repeated

• Struggles with reading and spelling

• Has difficulty with comprehension or memory

• Has difficulty sounding out unfamiliar words

• Makes careless errors

• Reversals are common. Reads “was” for “saw” or “b” for “d.”

• Completes written work very slowly

• Is disorganized and often leaves task incomplete

• Makes careless errors

An efficient learner does not struggle with academics. A child with strong processing skills completes homework quickly and correctly.

What if my child has already received extensive testing elsewhere? Do they still need to test at Learning Enhancement Center?

Regardless of prior testing, all students are given our own tests.  Students and parents should bring any additional testing they may have to their initial consultation — including IQ, achievement tests, TAKS tests,  individual educational plans, reports of ARD meetings, educational diagnostics, and others.

What should we do to prepare for testing at Learning Enhancement Center?

It is most important that students should be tested at a time of day when they are well rested.

Eat a high quality protein meal prior to the test. No sugar snacks! Sugar drinks, sodas and other sweets are discouraged — children sometimes become distracted, hyperactive, and silly when they over indulge in sweets, and this can result in questionable test results.

The tests typically take one hour including a consultation with the parent.
