Reading Disabilities and Language Disorders

When reading disabilities and language disorders get in the way of learning, the results can be frustrating for both the children and their parents.

If allowed to continue, without training the necessary skills to achieve successfully, reading disabilities and language disorders can cause individuals to begin to withdraw from participation in school and education.  

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

The effects of such withdrawal, of course, can be seen in a child's low self-esteem, eroded confidence and an overall negative academic experience.

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

Corrective Action for Learning Difficulties

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

Perhaps your child has been diagnosed with one of several types of problems such as Dyslexia, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).  Or, perhaps your child has been diagnosed with language delay or low visual memory.  You may even have tried numerous academic programs only to experience minimal results.

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 reading disabilities and language disorders is understanding the underlying problems that cause reading disabilities and language disorders.

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 reading disabilities and language disorders are available now from the professionals at The Learning Connection.
