The Learning Connection


Please read the following carefully:

Mr. Shapiro is not a licensed optometrist or opthalmologist.  He does not diagnose or treat the presence of abnormal conditions of the eye and its appendages, or the accommodative and refractive conditions of the eye:  or prescribe visual training and/ or the use of scientific instruments to train the visual system, and is not licensed in the state of Colorado to do so.  You should consult with and follow the instructions of an optometrist or opthalmologist when using visual training procedures.

Dyslexia and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)

Dyslexia and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) can make reading and learning difficult.  If children or an adult in your family has been diagnosed with Dyslexia or Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), call The Learning Connection today.  The symptoms of these disorders are well-known.

We specialize in the correction of poor reading skills resulting from these disorders.  How do we do this?  We  develop the 4 essential skills that are necessary in order for effective reading and learning to occur.

When reading difficulties get in the way of learning, the results can be frustrating for children and adults.  

Who can be helped?  At The Learning Connection, we offer a program of developmental therapy that involves corrective training for children and adults who have been diagnosed with Dyslexia or suffer from Attention Deficit Disorder and are currently experiencing reading and learning problems.

Perhaps your child or an adult in the family has previously been diagnosed with one or several types of learning disorders or disabilities.  You may even have tried numerous academic programs only to experience minimal results.

Children with reading disabilities and language disorders often shy away from the educational process.

If allowed to continue unabated, Dyslexia and other disorders like Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) can cause affected individuals to begin to withdraw from participation in the learning process.  

The effects of such avoidance, of course, are evident in the individual's low self-esteem, eroded confidence and, for school-age children, an overall negative academic experience.  

The Learning Connection was founded for the sole purpose of solving the underlying root problems that keep people from achieving at their top potential because of reading problems.  

Corrective Intervention

Parents of children with learning difficulties involving reading disabilities, language disorders and reading problems may be surprised to learn that many of these reading and language problems can be significantly corrected.  Typically, the process involves an initial screening followed by the development and initiation of an individualized therapeutic training regimen.

Understanding the underlying root causes of reading disabilities and language disorders is the first step toward corrective action.

Difficulties with math problems, poor handwriting, poor spelling, a short attention span, low reading comprehension, and visible low self-esteem, may actually arise from your child's inability to process written information.  That is, the neurological process that permits learning to occur may not be fully developed in your child.

Underlying Root Problems that Stunt Potential

The first step to correcting Dyslexia and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) is understanding the underlying problems that cause reading and language problems to occur.

Most conventional programs are designed to help struggling students by prescribing tutoring, remedial reading, or other educational approaches.

Unlike these programs, The Learning Connection is geared towards correcting the root problems that cause:

  • Short Attention Span

  • Low Comprehension

  • Slow, Choppy Reading

  • Poor Handwriting and Spelling

  • Inability to Follow Directions

  • Number and Letter Reversals

  • Low Self-Esteem

Corrective solutions for Attention Deficit Disorder and Dyslexia are available now from the professionals at The Learning Connection.  Reading problems can, in many cases, be corrected substantially.  

Children and adults exhibiting the symptoms listed above are good candidates for our unique program, even if they have not been diagnosed with Dyslexia or Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
